Dr. Needham is an expert in infant development. In this talk, Dr.
Needham will present findings from her research program on the
development of reaching in infancy, which is one of the first motor
skills to develop after birth and thus an important contributor to
infants’ learning and developmental experiences. Dr. Needham will
discuss how perceptual, motor, and cognitive mechanisms support the
early development of this important motor skill. Partial funding for
this event has been provided by the College of Arts and Sciences thanks
to the generous support of the President's Advisory Council members.
This event is co sponsored by the Department of Psychology.
