I-LABS: Connecting early learning and brain development The Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences (I-LABS) is the world’s leading interdisciplinary research center on early learning and brain development.
Our groundbreaking research is revolutionizing our understanding of children’s development in their early years, and revealing how this affects brain changes in adolescence, adulthood, and aging.
Bridging new discoveries and real-world applications I-LABS is part of a growing national and international movement to help children maximize their learning capabilities. We work in collaboration with people and organizations that directly affect children’s lives—from educators and policymakers to national advocacy organizations.
Our discoveries shape evidence-based programs and policies that help children everywhere reach their social, emotional, and cognitive potential.
