Our Studies

The Social Cognition Lab explores cognition from a developmental and evolutionary perspective. Specifically, our research focuses on the development of social cognition, including the recognition of others’ goals and needs (e.g., intention reading, theory of mind), the imitative and empathetic responses to those goals and needs, and the subsequent generation of prosocial behaviour.  Each is examined in a comparative manner, studying infants, young children, non-human primates, and dogs.
