Speaker information

Dr Mairead MacSweeney, UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience; ESRC Deafness, Cognition and Language Research Centre

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.

Please note that this lecture will have BSL interpretation
