Welcome to the InfantLab!

At the InfantLab, we study infants’ and children’s cognitive development. We particularly focus on how infants and children perceive the world around them, and how they combine different sensory inputs to control their actions. For example, some of the questions we ask include:

  • How do infants recognise people?
  • How do children learn to reach for objects?
  • How do they know where their own hands are?

Signing Up

We are always looking for babies and parents to join us at our lab, and take part in our short, fun psychology studies! We will contact you when your child is within the correct age range for one of our studies, and invite you to a visit in the lab. Most of our studies include a single visit of about an hour. Most families find the experience very enjoyable and informative. Also, your baby will receive a little reward for their contribution in advancing scientific research!

So if you are pregnant or have a baby under 12 months of age and you are interested in taking part, please sign up!
