Our research is committed to understanding how newborns, infants, toddlers, and adults learn about language and about the world around them. We explore how infants discover and use the perceptual, cognitive, and linguistic information that allows humans to understand their world. We are particularly interested in the distinctions that infants make between humans and other animals, themselves and other minds, and between nonsense noise and sounds that are unique and important to speech.

We hope that you are also fascinated by the prospect of uncovering how children think and learn. If you are interested in helping us in our discoveries, we encourage you to consider participating in a study. Our studies are designed so that parents are always with their children, and children are engaged in a safe, fun, multimedia activity.
