Welcome to the Child Development Laboratory! Our research focuses on multiple facets of socio-emotional development. We study cognitive, social and emotional processes and are interested in the observation and measurement of attention, memory, as well as emotion expression and social experience. Our lab specializes in linking these psychological processes to neural activity through brain imaging methods such as EEG, ERP and functional neuro-imaging.
