The Child Development Research Area is a collection of researchers studying the cognitive, social, and emotional development of children from birth to adolescence.
Our studies encompass basic and applied research and our participants include typically developing children as well as children who have special needs (e.g., children with language disability, dyslexia, or who were born very prematurely). The areas of expertise within the group include: emotional development; language development, including in bilingual children; memory development; development of literacy skills and the development of social cognition. Our studies largely employ a multi-method approach spanning: neuroimaging and EEG; neuropsychological evaluation; behavioural methods; parental interview and teacher report.
The Child Development Research Area is part of the Brain and Cognition Research Group.
