About Us

The Child Development Labs are a group of research labs in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Boston University. We work with children from birth to 12 years of age. Our studies involve stories and games, and visits are scheduled at your convenience. If you think you might like to participate in a study with your child, either now or in the future, we would love to hear from you!
