Ruihan has been awarded a student bursary to attend the Summer University program of the Central European University (CEU) “Representing the world in the developing mind: From objects to context”. The program gathered different fields of experts, such as cognitive and neurodevelopmental psychology, in one place to talk about how the developing mind represent the world. From the development of executive function to Theory of Mind, studies have assumed that developing minds have a stable representation of objects, which they enumerate and track according to the perceptual input and maintain despite occlusion. During the program, it has also been discussed that the interaction between different factors contributing to object perception and memory, from theoretical and empirical perspectives. The the ultimate goal of the program is to advance the understanding of how infants form representations of their environment, and how these representations develop throughout childhood.
