At the Cognitive and Language Development Lab, we investigate how infants and children interpret the world around them. We do not make individual assessments. Rather, we are interested in how infants and children, in general, think about the world.
Our studies explore how infants and children think about objects and actions in simple events, such as a bird soaring out of its nest and into a pool.
Our studies also explore how children describe such events. We have found that infants and young children often know a lot more than people may believe!
We conduct studies both in person at our lab located at Montclair State University, and online via Zoom!
