A visit to Baby Lab

What a great post on culturebabies.org about the Partnership on A visit to Baby Lab, where babies are the ideal visitor.

“Even though babies cannot tell us how they see things or what they are thinking, infant researchers have come up with ways of finding this out. If babies look at one thing more than another (‘preferential looking’) then we know that they must be able to tell the difference between these two things. If babies look at something new longer than something they have seen before (‘novelty preference’), then we know that they can tell the difference between the familiar and the new thing.”
