Flora presents summer scientist work at AVA meeting
On Monday 19 December, my PhD student, Flora Ioannidou presented her first study in the context of her PhD at the AVA meeting at Queen Mary University of London. In her poster, she presented the results from a study conducted at the summer scientist event. Children were asked to sit at a computer and to search for a target object in screens full of objects. On some of the trials, cues were placed near the target object to examine whether such cues help children to find the target. The results showed that hand and arrow cues helped in finding the target, particularly in young children, but that eyes did not have such effects.
