Through our current study, we aim to find effective methods of promoting honesty by gaining a better understanding of how children think, use their memory, and organise information during different types of scenarios that may lead to possible lie-telling.

The study is a purely observational study and involves children playing a few fun games with the experimenters.

The current target age group is children aged 3 to 6 years old.

You will receive an individual report of your child's performance in cognitive and language assessments and a small gift of thanks from the lab. Your taxi/parking fare will also be reimbursed (up to $50).
