Developmental Psychology

Developmental psychology explores the factors that affect our physical, perceptual, cognitive, emotional, and social development across the lifespan. We study the relative contributions of innate and experiential factors in development from infancy through aging, using experiments examining behaviour and/or physiological indices.

  • Acquisition of music and language
  • Perceptual abilities of normal infants and the consequences of deprivation
  • Development of reading fluency in childhood
