CNI Seminar: Andre Fenton

April 9, 2024
12:00 PM - 1:15 PM

Andre Fenton Center for Neural Science NYU   Cognition in the noise: remembering, remapping, and reframing cognition dynamics   How do we learn and know? For much of my career it was assumed that neurons respond to external stimuli as if to represent them. However, an equally plausible idea asserts that neuronal activity models experience […]

ILST seminar: Amanda Seidl

April 12, 2024
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Amanda Seidl Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders Yale University   Touching to learn: How sensory cues impact word segmentation and learning   A large body of research documents the noisiness of the infant’s environment and the difficulty of word segmentation and learning. Despite this, infants successfully segment and recognize some words by 4-5 months. […]
