Our Mission

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. While we have similar goals, each lab works on different projects, and you are welcome to participate in research at more than one lab.

Participate in Studies

We rely on families like yours to join our research and help us learn more about how children develop. 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! Fill out our parent volunteer form and join the many families who are already interested in participating in research.
