Welcome to the Cornell University B.A.B.Y. Lab
The Behavioral Analysis of Beginning Years (B.A.B.Y.) Laboratory is housed in the Eleanor J. Gibson Laboratory of Developmental Psychology. We are located in Uris Hall.
We study the development of communication, cognition, and language. Over the first years, infants develop increasingly sophisticated means of communicating, from babbling to early words to language. We seek to understand the mechanisms by which communicative and cognitive development take place.
