 Election Citation
Csibra has provided remarkably innovative insights about how infants rely on the natural behavior of adults to make inferences about the role of social agents by revealing early biases about their expected facial features, a rudimentary Theory of Mind, and sensitivity to task pragmatics using clever behavioral and neuroimaging methods.
 Research Interests
My research focuses on various aspects of cognitive development in human infants. Currently, I study how infants understand actions and social interactions, how they attribute mental states, how they interpret communication addressed to them, and how they learn from others. I am also interested in episodic memory, object perception, symbol use, and many other topics in cognitive psychology. Our research is methodologically promiscuous: we employ various behavioral and neuroimaging methods to answer these questions
