Cognitive Development Center (CDC)

The Cognitive Development Center (CDC) was established in September 2008 for studying the cognitive development of babies and children. The research of the center addresses questions related to the ontogenesis of human cognitive capacities, especially action interpretation, mental attribution, social cognition, reasoning, communication, and basic cultural learning mechanisms. The CDC is part of the Department of Cognitive Science and plays an active role in the PhD program in Cognitive Science.

Developmental continuities and core mechanisms in social and moral cognition

In his talk on June 2, 2010, Prof Luca Surian (University of Trento, Italy) presented the results of some recent experiments he and his research team carried out to investigate causal perception, mental state attribution, and social evaluation skills in infants, children and adults. They assessed causal perception using the habituation/dishabituation paradigm by presenting 6-month-olds with simple events involving two agents that reacted at a distance.
