The Infant Cognition Group studies how infants and young children perceive and reason about the world around them. More specifically, our studies explore such topics as how infants and children discriminate animate from inanimate objects, how they interpret the behaviour of others, how they evaluate and engage in prosocial behaviour, and how they come to understand artifacts such as tools and maps.
Our team consists of Dr. Valerie Kuhlmeier and an energetic group of graduate and undergraduate students, laboratory assistants, and research interns. On our website you can meet the research team, learn about our ongoing studies, download our publications and presentations, and find out how to participate. Also, you will find links to our collaborators and other sites of interest.
