Please join us for Developmental Science HOA, a new collaborative Hangout On Air series which is co-hosted by Science on Google+ and Developmental Psychology. In the first Developmental Science HOA we will be talking with Dr. Gedeon Deák. Gedeon Deák is a Professor of Cognitive Science and Human Development at University of California, San Diego and is the director of the Cognitive Development Laboratory at UC-San Diego. Gedeon Deák studies the dynamics of infant social interactions and social learning, using experimental behavioral paradigms, ethnographic investigations, physiological studies, and computer simulations. He and his collaborators conducted the first study of real-time interactions between parents and toddlers with high-density EEG and motion capture of both participants. He also studies how children learn and use words, and how they flexibly shift their attention, representations, and inferences.

  1. Thanks Gedeon Deák , that was a really informative and interesting talk. The EEG/muse data that you were talking about at the end was very novel to me and really quite extraordinary. Thanks to Science on Google+  and our moderators Chris Robinson  and Buddhini Samarasinghe  for bringing us this great presentation.
