Professor Laura Visu-Petra is a principal investigator in the Developmental Psychology Lab, her main areas of interest being the typical and atypical development of executive functions, relevant for developing training programs and for improving academic performance. Her current research interests target emotion-cognition interactions in high- anxious children (from early preschoolers until adolescence, with a focus on working memory and cognitive-affective flexibility). Another current research interest relates to the emergence and development of deceptive behavior in relation to the child's socio-cognitive (theory of mind, executive functions) and problematic behavior.
