We use a variety of measures to study child development, including parent questionnaires, computer games to assess children’s learning, EEG to assess brain activity patterns, cortisol levels to assess stress hormones, and observation of parent-child free play.

Our studies take place at the BEE Lab at Boston University. All studies are scheduled at times that are convenient for you and your child. We provide free parking in a garage across the street, and we are happy to provide childcare for siblings in our playroom.
