Brain and Early Experiences Lab

In the BEE Lab, we are interested in how parents support healthy brain development in the first years of life. We also investigate how children learn to control their attention and emotions.

In the News:

  • Dr. Tarullo, BEE Lab Director, was named Outstanding Early Career Psychologist of the American Psychological Association Division 52, International Psychology. Check out a video about the BEE Lab’s international work!
  • Dr. Tarullo answered questions about the science of parenting and the secret to getting a baby to sleep for Boston University’s Alumni Magazine. Check it out!
