Event: SMRC Rising Stars Webinar Series: Dr Priya Silverstein


The first part of this talk will introduce a study conducted as part of Priya’s PhD investigating how infants learn to follow gaze. This eye-tracking study tested a hypothesis stemming from the developmental robotics literature that infants learn to follow gaze through reinforcement. The second part of this talk will discuss how Bayes Factors were used in this study to determine sample size (through Bayesian sequential testing) and quantify support for the null hypothesis, and how these methods can be applied in your own research.


Priya is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the CoGDeV Lab at the University of Surrey. She is passionate about methods for studying development, and how we can do better, more transparent, reproducible, and diverse science.
