Welcome to the UO Learning Lab!

We are a team of developmental scientists who are working hard to figure out how infants and toddlers learn to recognize words and objects. Keep reading to learn more about our discoveries and how you can help!

Everyone who works in the UO Learning Lab is a highly trained researcher. Our team includes scientists who have earned their Ph.D., graduate students currently seeking a Ph.D., and undergraduate students who are learning to conduct research. All students are closely supervised.
