Teaching and research in the Developmental cluster focus on how humans develop across the lifespan and the interplay between individuals and their social worlds. Psychologists in our cluster investigate a number of topics, including: the development of emotion regulation and related anxious and aggressive behaviors during infancy; achievement socialization; development of aggressive behavior patterns in males and females during childhood; social cognition; gender; self processes and relationships during adolescence; and families and communities as contexts for human development. Faculty and students consider the role of biological, social, and cognitive factors in these developmental processes.
