Developmental Seminar Series- Hyowon Gweon

Date: 
December 2, 2015 - 1:45pm to 3:00pm

What we know about the world is heavily mediated by what others know about the world, and in turn, we affect what others know by sharing our own knowledge. What underlies this remarkable human capacity to learn from others and communicate with others? In this talk, I will present a series of studies that aim to study the inferential processes and the representations that allow young children to learn about the world, evaluate others, actively communicate with others in social contexts.  

About the presenter:

Professor HyowonGweon is broadly interested in understanding the human ability to communicate - in particular, how we learn from others and teach others. How do we construct rich, abstract theories about how the world works from our everyday experiences that often involve other people, and how do we communicate what we know to others? Professor Gweon’s research brings together various approaches - developmental, computational, neuroimaging, and clinical — to provide a unified description of the cognitive and neural mechanisms that underlie the representations and inferential processes that allow us to learn about the world, and to communicate what we know.
