Welcome

Who We Are

Welcome to UC Berkeley’s Developmental Labs! We belong to a consortium of labs listed below. These labs collectively study children’s learning, cognition, and language, as well as motor, perceptual, and social-emotional development.

Participating Labs:
Srinivasan Language and Cognitive Development Lab
Gopnik Cognitive Development Lab
Xu Berkeley Early Learning Lab

Our studies range from 5 – 30 minutes and take place in Berkeley Way West, at museums and public areas, and in local schools. We design our games to keep children engaged and interested, and we stop if they no longer want to play. Your participation is confidential and anonymous. There are no risks or benefits.

Once you reach out expressing interest in participating in one of our studies, we will email you to follow up and schedule a time that works for you to visit our labs at Berkeley Way West.

Get Involved

We couldn’t do it without families like you who volunteer to participate in our studies. If you’re interested in participating, please click on “Get Involved.” We appreciate your interest and participation!
