Research with children

At the CBCD, we don’t just study babies and toddlers, we’re also interested in how children continue to develop throughout the school years. During middle childhood, our brains, cognition and behaviour undergo further development. We run studies with children in our specialist labs at the BabyLab, ToddlerLab and Alpha Lab as well as in schools, to help us understand more about the developmental and cognitive changes experienced throughout childhood. Recent projects have examined how children combine information from different senses to reason about and make sense of the world, and the impact of noise in school and home environments on children’s ability to focus and pay attention to tasks.
