Welcome to Child Research at Rutgers, Newark!


How do infants and young children learn about the world around them? Help us find out by participating in a 30-minute study at one of the Child Research Labs at Rutgers University in Newark!

In a typical visit, your child will sit on your lap while we show him or her various pictures or videos on a screen. Older children typically play a computer game or read a story book. Children find our studies fun and interesting, and parents do too!

We currently have three Child Research Labs at Rutgers.

For more information about each lab, visit their websites:
