Welcome to the UCLA Baby Lab!

The principal focus of our research is perceptual and cognitive development. Infants are born with no visual experience, and are suddenly confronted with a barrage of new sights and sounds. How do they begin to make sense of this new sensory input? We explore this question, and many others, with studies that investigate visual and auditory perception and learning processes in infants, children, and adults.

For more information, click on the “About” tab above. Additional information is provided in the “Research” and “Representative Publications” sections. OurĀ research relies on the good will of parents who participate by bringing their infants to the lab. Visits to the lab are quick (almost always less than an hour) and we make every effort to ensure that parents and infants have an enjoyable stay with us!
