One of the great unsolved mysteries in science concerns the origins of intelligence. What are the learning mechanisms in newborn brains? What role does experience play in the development of knowledge? To address these questions, my lab uses a two-pronged approach.
More generally, I am interested in a wide range of questions about the origins and nature of intelligence. I have studied the psychological abilities of diverse populations, including human adults, toddlers, infants, chimpanzees, wild monkeys, and newborn chicks.
