    Chapter: Research Methods in Developmental Psychology (NOBA)

    Overview

    By Angela Lukowski and Helen Milojevich

    University of Calfornia, Irvine. 

    What do infants know about the world in which they live – and how do they grow and change with age? These are the kinds of questions answered by developmental scientists. This module describes different research techniques that are used to study psychological phenomena in infants and children, research designs that are used to examine age-related changes in development, and unique challenges and special issues associated with conducting research with infants and children. Child development is a fascinating field of study, and many interesting questions remain to be examined by future generations of developmental scientists – maybe you will be among them!
