We are interested in general cognitive development and individual differences related to intelligence. Moreover, we investigate interactions between children and adults, especially how they influence cognitive processing and children’s compliance. To this end, we employ EEG, eyetracking, behavioral interaction analyses and speech content analysis. We invite infants, children and adults to participate in our studies and contribute to our understanding of the mind and how we can exert positive influences on it.

  • EEG studies on the development of categorization and on the influence of speech on cognitive processing
  • EEG studies on individual differences in general cognitive abilities
  • Eyetracking studies on the influence of infant-directed speech on cognitive processing
  • Behavioral and speech analyses of parent-child-interactions in collaborative situations (e.g., cleaning up the kids’ room, preparing a meal)
  • Meta-analysis of the relation between intelligence and executive functions in development
