In our studies on infant categorisation we address the perception of similarity and dissimilarity in the developing mind. One focus of our research in this area is the impact of labelling on category learning in preverbal infants: does hearing similar words for similar objects facilitate category formation?
Communicative Development Inventories (CDIs) are tools for measuring vocabulary size and growth. We make use of parents' extensive experience with their own child to estimate vocabulary skills.
Does sleep help infants integrate language experience, such as the meaning of a new word or how a word sounds in different local accents?
This app is a research tool developed by the Oxford University BabyLab to conduct our research of language development in infancy with minimal need for face-to-face testing in the laboratory.
