It is my pleasure to invite you to the next Nencki Institute seminar, which will take place on the 13th of October, at 3 p.m., in the CN lecture Hall. We will host prof. Milene Bonte, head of the Brain and Language Group at the Maastricht University. Prof. Bonte will give a lecture entitled: Capturing letter and sound learning in typical and dyslexic readers.
The formation of efficient associations between visual and spoken language representations forms a fundamental step in reading development. Although we have a fairly good understanding of how our brain processes already learnt associations, we know very little about underlying learning processes. In this talk I will discuss how behavioural, EEG and fMRI measures can be used to track neurobehavioral changes during letter and speech sound learning, and how these changes may relate to dyslexia.
The lecture will be followed by a get together reception.
