Developmental: Child, Youth, Aging

Child, youth, and developmental psychology at the ANU spans many sub-disciplines of psychology. Research that investigates early development (from birth to 8 years) focuses on language and cognitive development, with the latter focusing on face and body perception and visual deficits in children with dyslexia.

Research with older children investigates how the social climates of schools affect student outcomes. Other research focuses on psychopathology across childhood and adolescence, investigating topics such as the link between language development and psychopathology, conduct problems, schizophrenia, and eating disorders and obesity.
