Research

Our research unit CROSSING THE BORDERS examines the processes that underlie critical developmental change by focusing on parallels between the development of language and other cognitive abilities. To do this, our team of PIs, postdocs and graduate students work collaboratively on eight projects, based at instutions throughout Germany. Each project draws together experts from different disciplines, to work on specific research questions that bring can bring us closer to understaning the fundamental mechanisms of development during the first years of life.
Below, you can explore the aims, methods and researchers related to each individual project.
