How we research infant and child development

In order to capture the complexity of infants and children’s social abilities, we use a variety of methods, which we describe in more detail here. Most often, our research takes place in specially designed laboratory located in the Berrick Saul Building at the University of York. Here we have all facilities to work with children from the first month after birth.  We design our studies to be engaging and interesting for the children. Parents also tell us often that they learn a great deal about the social development of children by taking part in our research.
