Robot model for infant learning shows bodily posture may affect memory and learning

Using both robots and infants, a cognitive scientist and collaborators have found that posture is critical in the early stages of acquiring new knowledge. «This study shows that the body plays a role in early object name learning, and how toddlers use the body’s position in space to connect ideas,» an author said. «The creation of a robot model for infant learning has far-reaching implications for how the brains of young people work.»
