Description

MIT Associate Professor of Cognitive Science Laura Schulz describes the work of MIT's Early Childhood Cognition Lab in its efforts to understand the basic computations and cognitive processes that underlie early learning. She also explains a simple experiment designed to test what children learn about effort and how hard they try at a task after watching an adult struggle to succeed.
