At the Johns Hopkins Laboratory for Child Development, we investigate how infants and children perceive and reason about the world around them. We explore such topics as how infants and children remember hidden objects, learn new words, and think about number and mathematics.

Our studies involve playing simple games that parents and children usually find lots of fun! We are currently conducting these studies with infants and children between the ages of 0 and 10 years of age. We would love for you and your child to participate in our research! As a thank-you for your participation, we offer your child a small gift.
