  • Categorisation in Infancy

    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?

  • Sleep and Language Development

    Does sleep help infants integrate language experience, such as the meaning of a new word or how a word sounds in different local accents?

  • Oxford CDI

    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.
