Celeste Kidd on Attention & Curiosity

BCNM professor of pyschology Celeste Kidd was recently featured on the generally intelligient podcast, where she weighed in on curiosity, attention, learning, belief formation, and other fascinating cognitive topics.

A notable quote from Kidd during the conversation:

"I have a hot take. I'm asked all the time, and actually sometimes it's even an assumption of a grant that I'm applying for, that kids are more curious than adults. And I don't know that we know that. I won't go so far to say it's not true. I will say I have a hard time seeing it like that."
