The Neurocognitive Development Lab is part of the Infant and Child Studies program at the University of Maryland.

If you are a parent, we would like to extend an invitation to you and your child to participate in an interesting set of studies on normal child development.

  1. Our studies take place in a comfortable, home-like setting at the University of Maryland’s College Park campus.
  2. Parents participate with their children and are near to their child at all times during the visit.
  3. Studies focus on children of different ages, up to 10 years old.
  4. We each bring over 10 years of research experience to the study of cognitive and language and cognitive development in infants, toddlers, preschoolers, children.
