嘉宾介绍:

Gert Westermann is Professor of Psychology at Lancaster University, UK. He conducts research on infants’ early cognitive and language development, using a variety of methods (eye tracking, pupil dilation, ERP, computational modelling). In the past he was a Lichtenberg Fellow at the University of Göttingen, Germany, and he currently holds a British Academy/Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowship to study how infants learn through self-motivated curiosity.

讲座摘要:

A considerable amount of research has addressed the early abilities of infants to form categories of objects. Much of this work has focused on static visual stimuli and it has been found that even 3-4-month-olds can form categories from such stimuli. I will describe research that investigates multimodal aspects of object and category learning. I will address two main questions: first, by what age can infants rapidly link visual and auditory aspects of objects for ecologically valid stimuli? Second, by what age can infants use the names for objects to shape perceptual categories? After describing experimental work I will then present a computational model that provides an account of the mechanisms of integrating visual and verbal information in object category learning.
