Professor Corbetta Wraps Up Fall 2016 Science Forum with “How Do Infants Learn to Reach for Objects?”

corbetta-infants-reaching_11-18-16Daniela Corbetta, professor of psychology, will present “How Do Infants Learn to Reach for Objects?” at the final UT Science Forum meeting for the fall 2016 semester Friday, November 18.

The emergence of reaching in early infancy is a key developmental milestone. As infants begin to reach for objects, they begin to discover many features of objects and surroundings. In the last decades, our understanding of how infants learn to reach has changed dramatically. Professor Corbetta will highlight what we know today about how infants learn to reach for objects.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, November 18 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Rooms C-D.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

Additionally, this year, we have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. Please email Amanda Womac for more details.
