We investigate the development of children from the age of 4 months onwards. In our team, developmental psychologists and linguists study children's cognitive abilities and language acquisition. Our lab is situated on the Campus Golm of the University of Potsdam (for a detailed description of how to find us, please click here).

If you are interested in participating in one of our studies, please have a look at the parent information section where you can register for a study online. There you will also find information about our current studies, our research methods as well as frequently asked questions (FAQs).

Lively interest at the open day at the Potsdam Science Park

On Saturday, 03/Sep/2022, many families and guests visited the Potsdam Science Park and celebrated with us at the BabyLAB stand the 25th anniversary. In addition to information and hands-on studies, there was a painting activity and a quiz with small prizes. It was great fun. Here's to the next 25 years!
