Welcome from Lab Director, Prof. Patricia Greenfield
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 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
