The UU Social Connection Lab

The Social Connection Lab, led by Dr Wouter Wolf, is part of the department of Developmental Psychology at Utrecht University.

In this lab, we study what makes humans uniquely human. More specifically, we study how and why young children develop the social and cognitive skills that enable them to become cooperative and communicative adult humans, and how we use those skills to form cooperative social relationships with others. In our lab we work mostly with MSc and BSc students, conducting behavioral experiments with young children.
