Welcome to the Cognitive Development Lab at Carnegie Mellon University!

Our research group is interested in understanding several aspects of cognitive development, including: how children learn and generalize their knowledge in novel contexts, and what role children's developing attention regulation plays in learning inside and outside the lab.

We address these questions by presenting children (and occasionally adults) with thinking games. These games are designed to reveal important properties of children's attention and learning while being fun for children to play.

We hope you will look around our website to learn more about our research and our team, and contact us if you have any questions!
