Boston University, Developmental Psychology

Cara DiYanni's research and teaching interests center around early childhood development, particularly cognitive development, imagination, and play in the early preschool and early elementary school years. Even more specifically, her interest is in how/ when/ why children do/ do not imitate, how/ when/ why children do/ do not transmit information to others, cross-cultural similarities and differences in learning and teaching, and what factors contribute to all of the above.
