The primary research interests of the Carlson and Zelazo Lab center on the development of executive function skills including attention, working memory, inhibitory control, cognitive flexibility, and reflection. We conduct both basic and applied research on executive function from infancy to adolescence.

To examine these phenomena, we are currently working on a wide variety of studies. To learn more, read about our projects, or browse Dr. Carlson and Dr. Zelazo‚Äôs list of publications.
