Gora delivers March 28 Honors Council Lecture

Keith Gora, an assistant professor of psychology at Bemidji State University, will deliver an Honors Council Lecture on infant cognition and how infants may relate objects to one another on local and global levels to develop a perception of the world around them.

Gora’s presentation, “Exploring Infant Cognition: Infants’ Use of Perceptual Hierarchies When Processing Novel Objects,” will be held on Mar. 28 at 7 p.m. in Hagg Sauer 112 on the Bemidji State campus.

Honors Council Lectures are open to the public free of charge.

Gora received his doctorate from the University of Texas in 2009. His primary research interest is cognitive development from birth to adulthood. Sub-interests include early rule learning, language learning, categorization and effects of individual differences.
