What makes infants engage and disengage with information and why do some infants, but not others, maintain attention and persist on difficult tasks, despite repeated failures?


Cécile Gal is looking for evidence that infants remain engaged with information for as long as they can learn from it.

Claire Essex investigates why children are so drawn to TABLETs and what is the impact of media exposure on children’s attention and learning.

Khadijah Asif wants to understand individual differences in attention distribution in children with ASD and ADHD. 

We have been funded by The British Academy.
