Welcome to the UEL BabyDevLab!
In the UEL BabyDevLab we host a range of projects looking at all aspects of children's early development and learning.
The children in
our catchment area come from some of the most socioeconomically and
demographically diverse areas in the UK, and a major focus of our research is
looking at how children's early home environment influences their
concentration, learning, and emotion regulation. Our research uses a variety of
innovative techniques including dual parent-child EEG, miniaturised
microphones, cameras and stress monitors that can be worn by babies and parents
in the home, and computerised concentration training exercises for infants.
The lab hosts currently funded research projects by the European Research Council, Horizon 2020, the Economic and Social Research Council, the Leverhulme Trust, the Rett Syndrome Research Trust, the UBEL DTP Partnership and the LISS DTP Partnership. We also host collaborations with other institutions both within the UK (including the IoPPN at King’s College London, the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development at Birkbeck, Cambridge University and Queen’s University Belfast) and abroad, including Vienna University, Tampere University, Ben-Gurion University, Tel Aviv, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, and University of Alberta, Canada.
