THE DEP team focuses on answering questions related to human development, learning, and education. It offers its members an excellent experiential learning opportunity to apply psychological methods of inquiry and experience, working in a collaborative setting.

Currently our team is studying the relationship between the emergence of independent locomotion and changes in visual attention as part of a three-year multidisciplinary experimental study examining the effect of locomotor experience on the development of executive function in typically developing pre-crawling infants.

Members of our research team discuss the research literature, write literature reviews; use laboratory equipment, learn and use specialized software for analyses, write about their research, and present at student or professional conferences

The team also offers opportunities to conduct independent research.
