What do babies know about social dominance?


Humans are a social species. We live in groups, strive to affiliate with others, and feel sadness and despair when rejected by others. To successfully navigate social life, we must understand that there are status hierarchies and some individuals are (or can be) more dominant over other individuals. This talk will highlight some exciting research findings from Dr. Baron’s Social Cognitive Development Lab exploring how infants and children understand and reason about social groups and social dominance.
