Our Research

Our research labs vary in discipline and research focus, but are unified by their interest in exploring topics in children across all age ranges. We span UConn's Psychology; Educational Psychology; Linguistics; Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences; Human Development & Family Studies; and Cognitive Science departments, as well as the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity.
