Dr. Wagner has research interests in early cognitive development spanning several areas, including social and emotional processing, numerical cognition, and learning and memory. Dr. Wagner’s lab uses eye-tracking methods to study these topics in both typically-developing children and those at risk for later developmental difficulties, such as infants at risk for autism spectrum disorder. Dr. Wagner also brings considerable expertise in neuroscience methods for studying Human Development, including the use of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and event-related potentials (ERPs).
