What is it that makes us human beings - nature or nurture? Understanding the development of the human mind is crucial to providing infants and children with optimal educational and social conditions. In this 2009 Falling Walls video lecture, developmental psychologist Tricia Striano discusses how social cognitive skills are built and what we can do to help infants and children to communicate and learn. After receiving her Ph.D. from Emory University, Striano became head of the Independent Research Group on Cultural Ontogeny at the Max Planck Society. In 2004, she was recipient of the Sofja Kovalevskaja Research Prize of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation where she built up the Neurocognition and Development Group at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences. She obtained her Habilitation in 2008 from University of Osnabr©ơck and is now at Hunter College in New York City.
