For Parents

We run our research studies at schools, museums, via video chat, and in our own lab space on Yale’s campus. All of our studies are designed to be fun games that allow us to learn new things about how children in general reason and learn. In other words, your child will be among the first children to ever participate in our tasks, and your child’s participation helps advance the science of child development. (This is in contrast with labs that do testing and evaluation with tasks that thousands of other children have already done, and where you can therefore receive a report on how your child compares to other children.)

If you are interested in bringing your child to Yale to participate in one of our studies, you can sign up at or contact us with any questions at
