The Early Learning & Cognition Lab is the newest addition to the Department of Psychology at UCSD, and we are in the process of establishing our lab and research projects. If you would like to get involved and be informed of future opportunities to participate, please fill out Participation Questionnaire below! By participating in our research, you and your children will be making a great contribution to understanding cognitive development in early childhood. Our studies currently focus on children between 0 and 12 years old, and are designed to be fun and engaging for both you and your child.
Sign-Up to Participate
The Early Learning and Cognition Lab is part of a group of 6 developmental research labs at UC San Diego's -- collectively we are called the "Kid Science Labs." We are constantly recruiting kids 0 to 12 years old to participate in our studies.
If you would like to sign up your child (0-12 years old) to participate in our research studies, or any of the research studies from our other labs, please fill out this Kid Science Participation Questionnaire so we can contact you about studies available for your children's age ranges.
We are located on the fourth floor of McGill Hall on UC San Diego's campus in La Jolla, CA. We offer free parking for families who come in to participate in our studies. A researcher will meet you in our parking lot to bring you up to our lab.
From North County: Take the I-5 South Exit for Genessee Avenue. Turn RIGHT off of the exit and continue up Genessee Avenue to the top of the hill. Once at the top, turn LEFT onto North Torrey Pines Road. Next make a LEFT onto La Jolla Shores Drive (~ 1 mile), and then make an immediate LEFT onto Scholars Drive South. Scholars Drive South will turn right and become Muir Lane after a quarter mile. Continue for 0.2 miles before turning RIGHT into the parking lot just before the road dead ends. Please park in spaces #890, #891, or #892, which are on the right side about halfway down. A researcher will meet you there. Thanks!
From South County: Take the I-5 North Exit for La Jolla Village Drive. Turn LEFT off of the exit and continue up the hill on La Jolla Village Drive. Note, the street will turn into North Torrey Pines Road. Continue until you see La Jolla Shores Drive and make a RIGHT, then make an immediate LEFT onto Scholars Drive South. Scholars Drive South will turn right and become Muir Lane after a quarter mile. Continue for 0.2 miles before turning RIGHT into the parking lot just before the road dead ends. Please park in spaces #890, #891, or #892, which are on the right side about halfway down. A researcher will meet you there. Thanks!
