Our goal is to better understand the links between cognition and shared conscious experiences. In particular, we are interested in lifestyle factors that influence the development of cognition in children and adolescents and whether maturing cognitive abilities shapes shared experiences of the world. We use naturalistic or real-world scenarios examine social and cognitive development in various contexts clinical (e.g., severe head injury or developmental disorders like Autism) and non-clinical populations. We hope our work will shed new light into the many ways we interact with each other and our environment.
