Recipient of the 2004 Sofja Kovalevskaja Research Prize of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the 2010 Sanctae Crucis Award of the College of the Holy Cross for outstanding Professional Achievement. Dr. Tricia Striano was Head of the Cultural Ontogeny Group at the Max Planck Institute for Cultural Ontogeny and Head of the Research Group on Neurocognition and Development at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences and Center for Advanced Studies at the University Leipzig, Germany.
Description of research:
Dr. Striano studies early social, cognitive development in the first year of infancy. Her research team studies the way that social cues influence early learning in the first years. The team also investigates the neural correlates of joint attention, communication and learning, learning from media, the development of early interventions for autism, early cues to autism, and the relationship between art and social cognition.
