Welcome to Child Development Research at UC Davis

Thank you for your interest in our studies! At UC Davis we are doing exciting research on children and young adults of all ages, including investigations of cognition, perception, emotional adjustment, and social interaction. Whenever old studies finish, new studies begin, and this creates many possibilities for you to become involved in helping us learn more about the developing mind. If you are interested in having your child participate in any of these studies, and possibly participating yourself, please go to the sign up section which will let you provide us with some basic information. When we have a study that would be right for your child or for you, we will contact you to make sure you are still interested, and try to arrange a time that works best for you. Thousands of parents and children have had positive learning experiences while participating in UC Davis studies, and we hope to provide the same for you.
