Natalie Brezack and Haerin Chung, two doctoral students in the Infant Learning and Development Lab, both successfully defended their dissertations, only two weeks apart! During their defenses, they each gave an overview of the research they conducted throughout the past six years of their doctoral programs. Natalie’s dissertation focused on whether and how active experience supports children’s learning of conventional actions in instructed contexts. Haerin’s dissertation looked at the behavioral and neural responses that are associated with advances in motor development and that result from the effects of short-term action training. Congratulations, Doctors! We can’t wait to see what you do next.
