The PACS study analyses how differences in pre-school children’s performance on attention control and cognitive tasks are associated with their behaviour.
Our research explores how infants and young children see and interact with the world around them. We're interested in the factors that impact their development.
Bath Babylab contributes to the TABLET project. This project investigates how infants' touchscreen use impacts their cognitive, brain and social development.
New research from Bath psychologist Dr Rachael Bedford highlights some of the effects regular use of touchscreens could have on toddlers.
New research from Dr Rachael Bedford as part of the TABLET project recruited 12-month-old infants who had different levels of touchscreen usage.
