Have you ever wondered how your baby sees the world?

We are interested in how infants and young children perceive different aspects of their visual world. Our current research examines children's learning from television, the ability of 3-6-month-old infants to understand images of objects, and other questions relating to visual perception.

Our studies use eye-tracking, touch screens, videos, and games such as magnetic puzzles to engage children in exciting games that will engage their attention.
