Infant and Child Development
With the goal of underlying biological mechanisms, we study visual, cognitive and emotional development in infants/children.
Current projects include:
1) Visual Development in Typical Infants/Children. These studies use perceptual and eye tracking methods to track development of different aspects of visual processing in infants and children. Topics include: color, motion, form, face, and object discrimination.
2) The Effects of Color on Mood and Emotions. These studies look at what colors children prefer, as well as which colors evoke certain moods/emotions, like tranquility, engagement, positivity and creativity. This is part of a larger project of Spacious-Minds, a company that designs daycare centers inspired by science.
