About Us

Our lab is interested in answering some of the following questions:

How do infants interact with their caregivers?
How do infants process social and nonsocial images?
How do children understand casual relationships?
How do infants learn from contingency in their social interactions?
How do children learn from the anticipation of reward-related stimuli?
