How does it come about that within the first few years of life, babies learn to understand the world around them, become active and understanding partners in social interactions, and master one of the most puzzling of phenomena - language?
At the Lancaster Babylab, we work at answering these questions. Most of our studies involve children between 3 months and 4 years of age, but we are also interested to work with older children up to 6 years of age. We also try to understand children with cognitive disorders, such as Autism.
We are always looking to recruit families who might be interested in participating in our research.
Studies take place at the Lancaster University campus and typically involve a one-time visit lasting about 30 minutes. If you are pregnant or the parent of a baby or toddler and would like to join in our studies, please contact us.
