The MDLaB is directed by Thanujeni (Jeni) Pathman. We conduct studies of cognitive development in our lab at York University's Keele campus, as well as in local preschools, schools, zoos and museums. Our research provides insight about children's learning, memory and brain development. We hope our research will inform educational interventions. Participants in our studies are volunteers in the community who generously offer their time to help us with our studies.
