      I am looking a social cognition and how it develops. Social cognition is the part of the brain that helps us out in social situations. For example, knowing when someone is smiling, knowing when they are upset and understanding what we need to do to comfort them. We want to use eye-tracking to take a look at social cognition develops in babies born at their normal time and in babies that were born too early. We want to see if they develop the same or are they different.
