Webinar on What the Eyes Reveal About the Brain: Advances in Human Language Acquisition

Gallaudet University''s Brain and Language Laboratory The Clerc Center invites you to view a new webinar: "What the Eyes Reveal About the Brain: Advances in Human Language Acquisition-Insights from Visual Language and Visual Learning (VL2) and the Brain and Language Laboratory for Neuroimaging (BL2)" With Dr. Laura-Ann Petitto from Gallaudet University''s Brain and Language Laboratory Thursday, May 1, 2014 2-3 p.m.

Important research will be shared related to the visual modality and what happens when as Petitto''s says, "the lion''s share of knowledge comes from the eyes." What is the impact of that on brain structure and brain function? And particularly, how does this relate to early language acquisition? This webinar will use a different format from previous webinars. The first part will feature a pre-recorded tour of the Brain Lab with Petitto and her lab assistants. During the second part, Petitto will interact with viewers in a live question-and-answer session.
