Developmental Science Developmental Science

The Developmental Science research group use experimental, neuroscientific and modeling approaches to reveal the mechanisms underpinning human cognitive and social development. Their work has made significant contributions to our understanding of the development of cognition (including language, memory, theory of mind and moral judgements) and psychosocial factors such as attachment and childhood trauma. Research in the group is supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and the Economic and Social Research Council. The soon to be established Developmental Science research suite will house an infant behaviour observation laboratory, eyetracking systems and near-infrared spectroscopy allowing the group to bring a variety of converging techniques to bear on the challenging problem of understanding how the human mind develops and changes through early life.
