- The importance of "what": infants use featural information to index eventsNatasha Z Kirkham
Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck College, London WC1E 7HX, UK
J Exp Child Psychol 113:430-9. 2012..We argue that this may reflect a broader developmental trajectory, whereby infants first make use of multiple cue integration but with age are able to learn from a narrow set of cues...
- Sound support: intermodal information facilitates infants' perception of an occluded trajectoryNatasha Z Kirkham
Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck College, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HX, UK
Infant Behav Dev 35:174-8. 2012..Infants' oculomotor anticipations were greater in the Dynamic condition, suggesting that representations of visual occlusion were supported by auditory information...
- Location, location, location: development of spatiotemporal sequence learning in infancyNatasha Z Kirkham
Birkbeck College, University of London, Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, London, UK
Child Dev 78:1559-71. 2007..Saccade latencies to predictable locations decreased. We argue that temporal order statistics involving informative spatial relations become available to infants during the first year after birth, assisted by multiple cues...
- No two cues are alike: Depth of learning during infancy is dependent on what orients attentionRachel Wu
Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck College, University of London, London WC1E 7HX, UK
J Exp Child Psychol 107:118-36. 2010..We discuss these findings in terms of the perceptual differences and relevance of the cues...
- Infants learn about objects from statistics and peopleRachel Wu
Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck College, University of London, London, England, UK
Dev Psychol 47:1220-9. 2011..These findings suggest that infants can use feature co-occurrence to learn about objects and that social cues shape such foundational learning in distraction-filled environments...
- Learning to look: probabilistic variation and noise guide infants' eye movementsKristen Swan Tummeltshammer
Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck University of London, UK
Dev Sci 16:760-71. 2013..These findings suggest that infants integrate multiple sources of variability to guide visual attention and facilitate the detection and learning of statistically reliable events. ..
- Infants track the reliability of potential informantsKristen Swan Tummeltshammer
Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck, University of London
Psychol Sci 25:1730-8. 2014..These results provide the first evidence that even young infants can track the reliability of potential informants and use this information judiciously to modify their future behavior. ..
- Individual differences in infant fixation duration relate to attention and behavioral control in childhoodKostas A Papageorgiou
Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Department of Psychological Sciences, Birkbeck, University of London
Psychol Sci 25:1371-9. 2014..003) and hyperactivity-inattention (β = -0.35, R (2) = .06, p = .005) in childhood. These findings suggest that individual differences in mean fixation duration in infancy are linked to attentional and behavioral control in childhood. ..
- Visual statistical learning in infancy: evidence for a domain general learning mechanismNatasha Z Kirkham
Department of Psychology, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA
Cognition 83:B35-42. 2002..These results provide support for the likelihood of domain general statistical learning in infancy, and imply that mechanisms designed to detect structure inherent in the environment may play an important role in cognitive development...
- The art of conversation is coordination: common ground and the coupling of eye movements during dialogueDaniel C Richardson
University of California, Santa Cruz, CA 95064, USA
Psychol Sci 18:407-13. 2007..These results provide a direct quantification of joint attention during unscripted conversation and show that it is influenced by knowledge in the common ground...
- Bayes nets and babies: infants' developing statistical reasoning abilities and their representation of causal knowledgeDavid M Sobel
Department of Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences, Brown University, RI 02912, USA
Dev Sci 10:298-306. 2007..These data are discussed in terms of a developmental trajectory between associative mechanisms and causal graphical models as representations of infants' causal and statistical learning...
- Multimodal events and moving locations: eye movements of adults and 6-month-olds reveal dynamic spatial indexingDaniel C Richardson
Department of Psychology, Cornell University, New York, NY, USA
J Exp Psychol Gen 133:46-62. 2004..Experiments 2 and 3 showed that infants are capable of both binding multimodal events to locations and tracking those locations when they move...
