The Social Minds Lab is directed by Dr. Felix Warneken and is located in the Department of Psychology at the University of Michigan. We study the social development of children in their social and cultural contexts.
What We Do
We study children from different communities to create a more representative picture of children’s development and learning. We normally bring children and families into our friendly lab space located on University of Michigan’s campus to participate in playful activities with our researchers.
Due to the COVID-19 situation and our commitment to ensuring the health and safety of children and their families, our in-lab studies have halted until further notice. However, we have created quick and fun online studies that your child can participate in from your home computer, which typically takes 10-15 min. All you need is a computer and a webcam to participate.
