Research interests

I am tackling questions about early perceptual and cognitive development. Particular current focusses are the development of representation of personal space (the body), peripersonal space (the space within reach), and external space. I am also addressing multisensory integration, the emergence of executive functions, object permanence and object recognition. I examine these issues in typically developing infants and preschool children.
