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.

 

Current Research Topics

  • Development of auditory perception
  • Acquisition of music and language
  • Perceptual abilities of normal infants and the consequences of deprivation
  • Development of reading fluency in childhood
  • Origins and developmental course of extreme childhood shyness and social withdrawal
  • Development of attention and study of autism
  • Effects of aging on vision and attention
  • Development of aggression and bullying
