to the Early Emotion Lab!
Whether you are a parent looking for interesting studies
about families, a prospective student looking for new
and exciting research experience, or a fellow researcher
wanting to learn more about our newest findings, we hope
you will enjoy this website. We are happy to introduce
you to our Family Development Project,
which is a study of early family interactions conducted
through the Psychology
Department at the University
of Illinois. We are interested in factors that
influence family relations and children's social
development throughout infancy and early childhood. This
study consists of five exciting phases: pre-birth,
3.5 months, 12 months, 3 years, and 4.5 years.
