Cognitive Development Project

Cognitive Development Project

Welcome! Here at the Cognitive Development Project, we are investigating how children learn and make sense of the actions and speech of the people in the world around them.

We believe that our research will ultimately help parents and teachers understand the best ways to help children grow up happy, healthy, and smart!
