Welcome to the Cognitive Development Lab!
Our research investigates the development of attention and memory in early childhood. We use multiple research methods to study early development including measures of looking behavior, heart rate, and brain activity. The primary goal of our research program is to increase understanding of infant processing of faces in contrast to non-social stimuli, such as everyday objects and abstract patterns. We seek to describe the developmental trajectories of social and non-social information processing and to identify neural mechanisms contributing to differences in responses to these two classes of stimuli.
