Our studies tend to take one of two forms. When we study young babies, we typically show them animated movies or pictures, and track where they look. For instance, we might show a movie of a person talking, and examine how interested they are in the face, versus the person’s gestures. With older children, we tend to play short, fun games. For instance, we might have them describe a series of pictures, or act out instructions using some toys.
