‘What makes us Human?’ The Living Links to Human Evolution Research Centre, which hosts primate researchers from across Scotland, is teaming up with the St Andrews Baby and Child Lab to create a family friendly event in which children can play games designed to study the origins of cognition – both from an evolutionary and developmental perspective. These are games that both children and non-human-primates have played in studies to reveal ways in which our thinking is similar to other primates, and ways in which it is different. Children find out how primates approach the same activities they try and parents can read about the science behind the fun!
Every year ABC lab attends the School of Physics and Astronomy’s Science Discovery Day. The event is very well attended, bringing audience from across Fife for a day full of activities and shows.
This year the event is to be held on the Saturday 4th of March from 10am –4pm.
Recruiting 4-5 year olds and parents for study on culture and prosocial behaviour (i.e. helping, sharing and comforting).
Would you and your child like to take part in a new study to help us to discover the roots of prosocial behaviour? The Baby and Child Lab is recruiting children between the ages of 4-5 years old and their parents for a study on culture and prosocial behaviour (i.e. helping, sharing and comforting). We have study sites located throughout Tayside, Fife, Lothian and Glasgow. Please contact us at email@example.com or 01334 462063 to make an appointment to take part.
See our flyer attached for more info.
Children took part in one of our latest research studies at Dundee Science Festival on Sunday 30 October. Families also got a chance to see fun research games in action and hear about the psychological principles behind these games.
The Baby and Child Lab hosted it’s first Family Fun Day on 1st October and it was a resounding success. Over 65 families came along to find out about the games we play to understand how children think and learn and the sun shone throughout! Here are some pictures of the day!
