Oxford Brookes Babylab

Welcome to the Oxford Brookes Babylab!

At the Babylab, a team of dedicated researchers investigate current issues in Developmental Psychology, studying how children learn about the world around them.

Have you ever wondered:

  • How babies learn language so quickly and almost effortlessly?

  • How babies understand emotions?

  • How children learn to distinguish what is real from what is pretend?

At the Babylab, we ask these questions every day. But we need little scientists to help us answer them!

If you would like to visit us with your child to take part in our studies, please see the register page.

Check out our fun activity ideas! Available in English, French, Hungarian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Spanish, Turkish & Urdu
