Infant Attention

Dr. Steve Reznick, graduate student Jed Elison, post-doctoral fellow Deb Childress, and lab manager Barbara Goldman are developing laboratory procedures for assessing working memory and endogenous attention in infants and toddlers. These cognitive abilities underlie many important aspects of social and cognitive development. Assessment of working memory and endogenous attention in infants and toddlers who eventually develop ASD may explain symptom patterns and also provide important targets for early intervention.
