Last week the lab had the privilege of hearing fourth year graduate student from Tufts University, Rebecca Lange. During the lab’s weekly meeting, Rebecca delighted us with an amazing presentation on her work regarding the development of reasoning about the social world. Rebecca is interested in basic cognitive and epistemological questions surrounding essentialist reasoning, causal explanation, language and thought, and conceptual change. Her research explores early developmental intuitions to natural types of certain patterns in the social world, such as intuitions about the naturalness of social categories. Thank you Rebecca for sharing your interesting work with us!
