Participate with Your Child!

Our research lab is part of the Department of Cognitive, Linguistic & Psychological Sciences at Brown University.

Our projects investigate what children know about the world around them, how they learn new information, and how they use that information in new situations. We are interested in factors that help children​ acquire new knowledge and factors that might impede this process. Your child’s participation in our study will only take 5-30 minutes.
