Led by Dr. Kiley Hamlin, Canada Research Chair in Developmental Psychology, UBC’s Centre for Infant Cognition studies the development of moral and social behaviours in babies. With baby participants, the researchers use puppet shows, videos, and interactive games to explore infants’ responses to social interactions and learn what they’re thinking about.
