Come discover with us!

We are always looking for new "collaborators" - from newborns to adults. If you are a parent or teacher and would like to take part, let us know!


Our studies are designed to be fun for kids -- they involve stories and games, and typically involve only a single visit (about a half-hour). Visits are scheduled at your convenience. We run studies with infants (age 5 months and up), as well as older children of preschool and elementary school ages.


To find out more, or schedule a visit, please email us at madlab at ucsd.edu or call us at (858) 534-7713!
