Dr Peter Willatts
Dr Peter Willatts studies the development of thinking and problem solving in infants and young children. His special interest is on the development of strategies infants use to solve problems, particularly those involving planning. More recently, he has extended this work to consider individual differences in infancy, and the relation of measures of cognitive ability in infants to childhood IQ. He is also interested in the role of nutrition in early development, especially the importance of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA) in infant formula.
