The decline of cooperation, the rise of competition: developmental effects of long-term social change in Mexico

WELCOME


Our research explores how values, behavior and cognition are shaped by social change. Our current studies in Mexico, China, and Israel investigate human development within a changing social ecology that include variables such as urbanization, education and commercialization.



For information on our studies of the implications of technology for human development, please go to cdmc.ucla.edu. For information on our work on the implications of social change for cognitive development, learning, and textile design in a Maya community in Chiapas, Mexico, please go to weaving-generations.psych.ucla.edu



Under a developmental perspective our research interests have extended out to other avenues some of which include Primatology studies, language aquisition and gender studies.  We invite you to check out our links and pages for more information on these and other topics in our lab.
