Most of human social interaction depends on spontaneous processing of social information and appropriate responses in time. It contrasts with most of the experimental psychological settings, in which the stimuli are well controlled, the task and the instruction is highly explicit and the participants have plenty of time to think and react. Here, I would like to present a series of researches exploring how humans process social information spontaneously, how it develops, how the development could be affected by postnatal environment such as cultural background, and how it is disturbed by developmental disorder such as autism. I will focus on the researches on theory of mind and gaze processing, with the methodologies such as behavioural recording, eye tracking and electroencephalography, testing various populations.
