Center for Research with Infants and Toddlers
Toddlers explores the development of conceptual understanding in infants and young children, focusing on how they come to make sense of the social worlds around them. Directed by Lawrence A. Hirschfeld, professor of anthropology and psychology, the lab is broadly concerned with the origins of humansâ€™ highly developed ability to recognize and remember others and reason about them as members of different social groups. It focuses on understanding the nature and scope of the precocious processes that underlie the later-emerging development of social categorization, group-based inference, and moral reasoning, as well as the conceptual
habits that support them. The labâ€™s research designs are highly interactive and inclusive, attracting students and faculty members from several departments at The New School.
