Welcome to the Lab for Early Social Cognition
We conduct research on how children think about and participate in their social worlds. We are part of the Department of Psychology at the University of Maryland, College Park and members of the Infant and Child Studies Consortium at UMD.
Our research focuses on infants, toddlers, and young children up to about 6 years of age. For more information about our studies, please see our "For Parents" and "Research" menu options above. To sign your child up to participate in our studies, you can fill out the Child Studies Consortium’s short online form and a researcher will contact you. And don't forget to check out our "Photo Tour"!
