Research Activities

At the moment, we are recruiting for the following studies:

1) Preschool- and school-age children needed!

Do you have a typically-developing child aged between 3 and 8 years (inclusive), fluent in English or French or both?

Are you looking for a fun new activity to do with your child?

Are you interested in learning more about how children think and learn?

The Childhood Thinking Laboratory at the University of Ottawa (Director: Patricia Brosseau-Liard, Ph.D.) invites parents to participate in a research study on the development of children's behavior, investigating the links between children's cognitive skills and their learning of new information from other people. This study requires one 45-75 minute visit at the University of Ottawa and is presented as a game for young children. During this study, children are presented with a series of short games in which puppets and/or videotaped experimenters share information. Children are asked questions about the new information. They also get to play some games with cards and various toys. Their responses are videotaped. Children receive a small present for their participation.

If you are interested in learning more or participating in this study with your child, please contact us by phone, email, or using the contact form under the Participate tab.
