Research overview

I am interested in how the infant brain interacts with other people's brain during social interactions, and how this brain-to-brain interaction may mediate infants' cognitive processing. I am aiming to use a dual-EEG system to address this question.

Current Research

Interactive brains in uncontrolled environments

funded by European Commision, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.

In this project, we will examine how brains interact inside and outside the laboratory. Research into infant cognition has focused almost exclusively on intracognitive processes. But how are these processes dynamically altered by interaction with another person? By linking two EEG systems, we will be able to tell when an infant and a social partner are engaging in multiple aspects of social-cognitive processing.
