Welcome! The Cognition in Context Lab is housed within the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

In the Classroom


 Our lab focuses on examining children’s cognitive, behavioral, and affective development as a function of everyday interactions with parents and teachers. The larger contexts in which these processes occur – such as school environments, communities, and structures of familial support – are integral in the formation of our research questions. Through observational research designs, our goals are to provide a detailed characterization of children’s everyday, lived experiences – and how these experiences play a role in their development.
