We want to know how the mind develops

Austin Thought is a cognitive development lab at The University of Texas at Austin. Our research team wants to know how children and adults think.

We want to answer the big questions about the mind, and we think the best way to understand the mind is to explore how it develops. We run research projects to understand how the way we think about the world changes over time and in response to our environment, and publish research on our findings.

We’d love for you to participate.
