About the Lab
The research in the Language and Cognition lab at Queen's focuses on issues of language processing and learning, theory of mind development, and memory. We are exploring cognitive processes, with a focus on language, in relation to the social and cultural circumstances in which they unfold and the social competences they require. Our work bridges ideas and insights generated within developmental, cognitive, and social psychology. It also draws on theories and findings from linguistics, philosophy, and sociology.
This website contains information about our current research, people in the lab, research opportunities for students, and the findings of our past studies with children. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
