Research

  • Infancy and Early Development

    How do babies develop an understanding of the world around them? We look at how language is learned and how a child's brain begins to make sense of the world.

  • Language and Cognition

    Our expertise focuses on language at multiple levels from phonemes to literacy, and cognition from behavioural regulation to embodied cognition, and beyond.

  • Perception and Action

    How do we respond to different environments or stressful situations? We research how humans understand and process the world around us.

  • Social Processes

    How do we develop definitions of morality or trust, and how do they affect our emotions in social interaction or decision making?
