Pathways 2007: Babies and the Brain: Truths, Myths, and Politics
Babies and the Brain: Truths, Myths, and Politics
Andrew Meltzoff, Ph.D., and Patricia Kuhl, Ph.D.
April 17, 2007 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Dr. Andrew Meltzoff, Ph.D. and Dr. Patricia Kuhl, Ph.D., both researchers at the University of Washington, are the co-founders of The Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences. They have been researching one of the great wonders of humanity: how a baby hears parents and others talking and then learns to speak. Through their research, they are learning just what happens in a baby's brain to make that miracle of language unfold.
Their research has reinforced what every parent knows -that the more you talk and read to your child, the faster the brain develops language. Learn what Dr. Kuhl and Dr. Meltzoff have learned about babies and their brains, and how parents can better understand and nurture the magical years of babyhood.
