Description: 

Our everyday world is specified by multiple, concurrent, and often highly redundant multisensory inputs. Infants must be able to process, integrate, and understand such inputs if they are to respond appropriately to communicative signals. In this talk, I will discuss two main lines of research in my laboratory that shed light on when and how this ability develops: (a) the development of sequence learning, and (b) the development of multi-sensory selective attention.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Developmental Science Program in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences and the Center for Research on Families’ Early Childhood Research Group at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
