Housed in the Johns Hopkins University Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, the Laboratory for Child Development investigates how infants and young children understand the world around them.
The Lab's studies, featured in media outlets including The New York Times, NPR, and Time magazine, ask questions such as, What do babies remember about hidden objects? What are the developmental foundations of mathematical thinking? Are children logical? And how does surprise affect infants' learning?
Do you have a child scientist on your hands? We are seeking children from 0 to 10 years to come help us learn about children's thinking. Our studies involve a one-time visit that includes playing simple games or showing babies specially designed puppet shows and measuring how children respond. We would love for your child to participate! Parking is free, and as a thank you for your visit, we offer your child a small gift.
