Bergelson Lab

Duke CHILD Studies Group

The Bergelson Lab (aka BLAB) is a part of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at Duke University.

The lab recently moved to Duke from the University of Rochester, where we finished data collection in July 2016 for a longitudinal study called SEEDLingS (Study of Environmental Effects on Developing Linguistic Skills). You can read more about that work here.
