Limited Capacity seats available

How do the moving-images we consume throughout our daily lives change who we are? With the recent advent of mobile touchscreen technologies this question is more pertinent today than ever before as the youngest members of our society (i.e. toddlers) are now receiving daily exposure to intense sensory/cognitive stimulation at an age when neural plasticity is at its highest. In this talk I will present findings from the Toddler Attentional Behaviours and LEarning with Touschscreen (TABLET) project, the first longitudinal UK-wide developmental study investigating the association between exposure to moving-images in 6 to 36 month-old infants and socio-cognitive development.
