Andrew Baron will be speaking at Science World on Friday, Dec. 10th, 2010.  The title of his talk is "The World through the Eyes of an Infant". 
Friday, December 10 6:30-7:30 pm

Contrary to the popular belief that children enter this world as blank slates, current research indicates that babies are born with many of the cognitive abilities they will need to make sense of our world, and that infants are often aware of many things they can’t yet express. Parents and early childhood educators should attend this fascinating presentation by Dr. Andrew Baron from the UBC Department of Psychology.
