Cambridge Babylab

 

We have a number of projects who are actively recruiting!

How can you help?

Come with your child to our purpose-built playrooms at the Cambridge Babylab at the Downing Site to take part in one of our stuides.

Or take part online!

What happens at the visit?

Most of our studies involve something very simple but fun - like watching a computer display showing videos or playing with different toys. We use state-of-the-art equipment to study children's reactions to these different types of experiences.

If you are interested in taking part in one of our studies then please contact the researcher directly, email the Cambridge Babylab (babylab@psychol.cam.ac.uk) and refer to the project you would like to participate in, or fill out our contact form!
