At the Babylab we want to better understand how babies learn and develop, particularly during the first 2 years of life, but also throughout childhood.
In the ToddlerLab we will be investigating development in typically developing children. New technology will allow insight into the fascinating world of toddler development.
Research in the lab focuses on social cognition and executive functions during development and adulthood.
We are interested in how cognitive abilities increase as we grow older, in how individuals can vary in their levels of intelligence, and in how cognitive abilities can be altered in developmental disorders.
The Cognition in Naturalistic Environments (CINE) Lab focuses on the investigation of active audiovisual scene cognition in real-world and mediated environments such as VR, smartphones and film, and how these skills develop across early childhood.
