Research summary

My research aims to investigate imagination in children and its links to emotion processes, executive function and conduct problems. I am interested in tracking the development of imagination in a longitudinal sample to see variations in the level of pretend play to see differences in those who exhibit high and low levels of this. I will additionally be looking at whether these processes operate in a similar or dissimilar way in a virtual world.
