November 1, 2019: "Caregiver-child interaction influences causal learning...."

Updated: Nov 28, 2019

In our lab meeting this week we discussed Medina and Sobel's (2018) study, "Caregiver-child interaction influences causal learning and engagement during structured play." They found that parent-child interaction style (i.e. directive, guided or hands-off) influenced how much children learned and engaged in the activity.
