How do young babies learn?
As adults, we often do not have any or very few memories of our infancy. In the past, it was thought that this was because babies were not good learners and were not forming memories. However, we now know that infants are excellent learners. This talk will highlight some exciting research findings from Dr. Emberson’s Baby Learning Lab (new to UBC, formerly the Princeton Baby Lab) on how infants learn and the ways in which learning and new experiences engage their brains and minds!
