Many children grow up learning two or more languages and recent research has found differences in cognitive performance between monolingual and bilingual children. Currently we are conducting research looking at how bilingual infants transfer learning across cues and the influence of bilingualism on cognitive development.
We try to make the studies as convenient as possible, by coming to the parent and child’s home at a time that is appropriate for them. Each study includes one visit of about one hour, at a time of the day when the baby is alert and ready to play. Olivia, Sylvia, or Joscelin will lead the visit, along with an undergraduate research assistant. During this hour we will ask you to go through a series of games with your baby. Afterwards, we will talk with you about the games to help you understand more about the study. Click here to sign up for this study.
