James S. McDonnell Foundation Workshops on Infant Cognition

On August 1, 2001 the J. S. McDonnell Foundation awarded Richard N. Aslin (University of Rochester, NY) and Jacques Mehler (SISSA in Trieste, Italy) a grant to hold three or four workshops on “Infant looking: Methods used to assess cognitive development.” These workshops will involve 10-12 participants each and will focus on both looking-time measures and other methodologies (e.g., ERP, fMRI) that could be used in combination to gather more definitive data on infant perception, cognition, and language development.
