In this episode, Anjie chats with Deon Benton, an assistant professor of psychology and human development at Vanderbilt University. Deon directs the Computational Cognitive Development Lab, and he investigates causal learning in infants and children with a particular focus on those mechanisms and processes that support such learning. He uses both behavioral research and computational (connectionist) modeling to examine this topic. In this episode, he will share his recent research using a connectionist model to investigate infants’ understanding of morality.
