At the Child Vision Lab we want to understand how children and infants learn to see and act on the world.
At the Child Vision Lab, we create fun, child-friendly research studies that help us discover:
- what babies and children can see and how their visual skills develop
- what happens when infants and children are born with visual impairments
- how the brain changes when the sensory system and motor system start working together better during development
- we also apply our knowledge of visual development to understand what happens in adults when vision becomes impaired
We use state-of-the-art scientific approaches and techniques, whilst introducing parents and children to real scientific experiments in a fun and playful manner.
See our Summer Newsletter 2017 to find out a bit more about what we've been up to!
Since 2018, we launched Vision@UCL Talks, a free monthly event for everyone (from non-scientific public to expert scientists). The series features eminent international vision science speakers, who bridge the fields of psychophysics, fMRI, and computational modelling in vision science.
