At The Infant and Child Study Center we study how children from infancy to middle childhood understand and interact with the world around them. We are developmental psychologists with interests in cognitive, perceptual, and social/emotional development.
Dr. Kathleen Cain is interested in children's reasoning and emotions about themselves and other people.
Dr. Daniel McCall focuses on the development of problem solving within the first two years of life.
Dr. Nathalie Goubet investigates the impact of odors on infants' and children's cognitive and perceptual development.
In the Center, students participate in all phases of the research: participant recruitment, testing, babysitting of participants' siblings, coding of videotapes, data analyses, and publication of the findings.
