Parents needed for new University of Sheffield research project

Have your say

A University of Sheffield academic is looking for parents to help with her new research project into how babies and toddlers learn to deceive from birth to 47 months.

Dr Elena Hoicka at the University of Sheffield is seeking to discover how early forms of deception, such as hiding things so others can’t find them, might link to later stages of deception, like fabricating stories.

Parents wishing to take part should complete an online survey this month.
