Human Development Lab

Get Involved

Our research focuses on early childhood development between the ages of 3 and 5. We play short games with children, asking them to make choices to satisfy future goals, such as getting a present for a birthday party. You and your child will spend 15 to 30 minutes in our lab. Your participation will help us learn how children develop complex reasoning and decision-making abilities.
