Quick Introduction:

Children and the media.


My research focuses on the effects of media on children. My recent and current work explores the relation between television exposure and neuropsychological function (such as executive function and theory of mind) among infants, toddlers and preschoolers. In addition, I have studied parental mediation of television. Much of my parental mediation work has focused on how parent-child communication shapes children's responses to television.
