Professor Nameera Akhtar

Professor Akhtar's interests are in early cognitive and language development; in particular, how social and cognitive developments play a role in young children's understanding and use of language. Infants' and toddlers' social-cognitive understanding, and their motivation to connect with others, are seen as fundamental to language development.
