Peter Mundy, PhD Lisa Capps Professor of Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Education, has formulated a neurodevelopmental theory of social attention and the role it plays in learning, symbolic thinking and social-cognition. This theory, in part, guides the current research in Social Attention and Virtual Reality Laboratory or SAV Lab.
The Social Attention Virtual Reality Lab is a joint venture of the U.C. Davis M.I.N.D. Institute, School of Education and Center for Mind and Brain.
