Our hands-on research allows for advancements to be made in understanding how children process and develop language. With the use of a fancy new eye-tracking system, our student researchers have been able to gain reliable and implicit measures that can help determine language comprehension in infants as young as 6 months old!

Exciting news!

Our research lab has been awarded a 3-year research grant from the National Science Foundation in the amount of $500,000! This research, in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University, will explore how infants and young children think about spatial configurations (such as ‘support’ – the teddy in ON the bed) and acquire spatial terms that encode these concepts (“on”, “stick on”, etc.). As always, if you are interested in participating please send us an email or sign on up on our lab webpage ( This research would not be possible without all our adorable infant and child participants!!!
