Join Professor Mark Dadds on Wednesday 1 July as he investigates the link between a child’s eye gaze and their behaviour.
Humans have an inborn tendency to pay attention to the eyes of other people and reciprocate eye gaze. However, there are important individual differences in this inclination that is associated with mental health and social adjustment.
This talk will cover recent findings about young children with deficits in empathy and aggressive, antisocial behaviour and look at the role reciprocated eye gaze might play in their problems and their prevention and remediation.
Following the presentation will be a short Q&A.
