The Social Cognition Lab studies cognition from a developmental and evolutionary perspective. We examine the origins of cognition in a comparative manner, studying infants, children, dogs, and, though collaboration, non-human primates.  Specifically, our research focuses on the development of social cognition, including the recognition of others’ goals and needs (e.g., intention reading, theory of mind), the imitative and empathetic responses to those goals and needs, and the development of prosocial behaviour.

We're part of The Child and Adolescent Development Group at Queen's.
