Child Cognition Lab

Welcome to the Child Cognition Lab at the University of Waterloo

The Child Cognition Lab investigates how children understand and respond to the social world. Our research investigates many topics including how children explain and understand other's thoughts, emotions, and actions; how children understand ownership, rights, and responsibilities; how children engage in pretend-play, and how they understand the distinction between fantasy and reality.
