The Developmental Psychology Laboratory from the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Psychology and Educational Science, Babes-Bolyai University, is a research group interested in the domain of developmental science.
Our group investigates different aspects of children’s and adolescents’ cognitive, social and emotional development. We study typical as well as atypical developmental trajectories. On one hand, our studies have focused on children from birth to 6-7 years of age, because many of the fundamental abilities for optimal cognitive and emotional functioning develop rapidly in this period (early childhood). On the other hand, our studies also target how these abilities continue to develop in middle childhood and adolescence.
