Welcome to the Laboratory for Child Development at Johns Hopkins University.
Here at the Laboratory for Child Development, we study how infants and young children perceive and reason about the world around them. Through the work conducted in our lab and others, we have discovered that in many ways children know much more than people once thought! Yet in other ways, children perceive the world quite differently than adults do.
Our studies, approved by the Johns Hopkins University Institutional Review Board, explore such topics as how infants and children track moving or hidden objects, how children learn words for new objects or actions, and how infants and children understand number. We are currently conducting these studies with infants and children between the ages of 3 months and 6 years. If you live in the Baltimore area and are interested in signing up to participate in one of our studies, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call at (410) 516-6068. We'd be glad to talk to you and answer any questions you might have!
