Gliga Lab investigates early brain and cognitive development. We ask how children choose what to attend to and what motivates them to learn. We investigate how language changes the way infants perceive and remember the world. We study the role sleep has in learning. The populations that we work with span both typical and atypical development.

We use a variety of methods: electroencephalography (EEG), near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), eye-tracking, observational measures and questionnaires. 

Prospective MSc, PhD students or post-doctoral researchers, please contact us here.

We are in the School of Psychology, University of East Anglia.
