Welcome

Young boy with Dr. AtanceThe Childhood Cognition and Learning Lab (CCLL) began conducting research in the fall of 2003 under the direction of Dr. Cristina Atance. We are a child psychology lab interested in learning more about how young children think. To explore different aspects of children’s thinking, we conduct studies with 3- to 5-year-olds.

Learn more about our research, or sign up to participate in a fun study with your child!
