“Learning to See Faces” with Daphne Maurer

Babies are attracted to people’s faces from the moment they are born, yet newborns do not see faces as adults do, and it takes years for children to become adept at identifying people and their expressions.  Dr. Maurer will draw from extensive psychology research to show how we learn to see, judge, and remember faces–indeed, how we learn to see–and will describe both what happens when this process goes askew and how effects might be ameliorated by new therapies.

Dr. Maurer is a Distinguished University Professor at McMaster University, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and a leading authority on infant vision.

(The annual general meeting for members will take place before the talk from 7:15 to 7:45 p.m.)
