My research investigates core structures of cognition; those inherent cognitive mechanisms with which we interpret incoming information and which enable us to make sense of and reason about the world. My students and I are studying various aspects of cognition within the first months of life, as a means of investigating the nature of the human mind prior to the influences of language, culture, education, and extensive experience. The aim of our research is to gain a better understanding of how the human mind is inherently structured to interpret and make sense of the world – what is the nature of the underlying mechanisms of thought.
