Laurie Santos

Laurie Santos is the director of the Comparative Cognition Laboratory at Yale University, which explores the evolutionary origins of the human mind by comparing the cognitive abilities of human and non-human primates. Her research examines the following broad questions: what domains of knowledge are unique to the human mind? Given that human infants and non-human primates both lack language, what similarities and differences do we see in the expression of non-linguistic domains of knowledge?
