Building blocks of joint attention: Sensitivity to having one’s own gaze followed in early infancy

Detecting when one’s own gaze has been followed is a critical component of joint attention, but little is known about its development. To address this issue, we used electroencephalography (EEG) to record infant neural responses at 6.5 and 9.5 months …

Learning to grasp and extract affordances: the Integrated Learning of Grasps and Affordances (ILGA) model

The activity of certain parietal neurons has been interpreted as encoding affordances (directly perceivable opportunities) for grasping. Separate computational models have been developed for infant grasp learning and affordance learning, but no …
