London Babylab



The London Babylab is for parents and guardians of children under the age of 6 who enjoy science and want to know more about how their babies develop.

We are part of the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience within the UCL Institute of Child Health which works in partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital, the largest centre in Europe devoted to children's health and wellbeing.

We are a group of specialists in early child development working in the heart of London to try and understand how babies' brains really work. If you would like to have a unique experience with your little one and make your own contribution to the science of child development, come and visit us!
