Profile information

Organisation profile

The Developmental Science research group use experimental, neuroscientific and computer 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 Developmental Science research suite in the Lawrence Stenhouse building houses state-of-the-art infant equipment for behavioural, eye-tracking, and neuroimaging studies with infants, toddlers, and young children. These facilities, as well as extensive research in the community and local schools, allow 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.
