Child Research at Amherst College!

The Child Learning and Development Lab at Amherst College

Do you have a child between 3 and 5 years of age? Professor Carrie Palmquist, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Amherst College, is conducting a series of studies at the Child Learning and Development Lab that investigate how children learn from others and about the world around them.

Our research is designed to be fun and engaging for your child, while also allowing you to learn more about your child’s development.  Study visits are short, and take place in a comfortable, quiet setting located conveniently on the beautiful campus of Amherst College. We have reserved parking for you and your family.

By participating in one of our 30-minute studies, you and your family will contribute significantly to our knowledge of child development. If you are interested in volunteering for a study, contact the CLAD Lab at 413-542-5652, email
