Dr. Younger's major research interests are
in infant cognition. The primary focus of her research has been
on the development of categorization abilities in infants. She
is also interested in relations between categorization and language.
Current investigations focus on
- infants' developing ability to form and
represent more than one category at a time
- task constraints on infant categorization
- perceptual processing biases as they relate
to individual stylistic variation in early language acquisition.
