In the CEC, we aim to understand how we make sense of the world around us.

We investigate the development of social cognition and emotion understanding in infancy and childhood by assessing infants' emotion attributions, false-belief understanding, imitation/emulation, and false-emotion attributions using a multi-method approach (non-verbal measures, behavioral paradigms, violation-of-expectation paradigms, eye-tracking).

We also investigate the role of context in emotion perception, especially as it pertains to how facial expressions of emotion are categorized and visually processed.
