Scott is a developmental psychologist whose research involves the study of the neural mechanisms of perceptual category learning and perceptual experience in developmental populations. Using both behavioral and electrophysiological methods, her work focuses on how specific visual experiences influence how infants and adults learn to recognize and categorize various types of objects. As a

Family Research Scholar, Scott is proposing to focus on infants’ perceptual abilities, face recognition and other-race face bias. The proposed research will consist of several experiments to examine the consequences of perceptual narrowing on the development of perceptual, cognitive, and affective development during the first year of life.
