Language and the brain: Insights from Deafness and Sign Language
17 March, 2015 @ 1:15 pm - 1:55 pmFree
How does experience shape language development? This lecture will examine what we currently know about how the brain processes a signed language and how you learn to read a language that you can’t hear. It will also examine how this research can be used to drive forward evidence-based language and education interventions.
Speaker: Dr Mairead MacSweeney, UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience; ESRC Deafness, Cognition and Language Research Centre
