Learning to Communicate

Finding the words

Although babies can’t talk, where they look and what they prefer to look at are really good indications of their knowledge of the world around them.

With the help of an eye tracking device we are able to gather data about babies’ gaze direction and eye movements which allows us to study language development from the very first months of life.
