Webinar on What the Eyes Reveal About the Brain: Advances in Human Language Acquisition On May 1, 2014 the Clerc Center presented a 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. In the webinar, Petitto shared breakthrough research related to the visual modality and what happens as she said, “the lion’s share of knowledge comes from the eyes.” She addressed the impact of that on brain structure and function and findings on how this applies to early language acquisition. This webinar was split in two parts: The first part was a pre-recorded tour of the Brain Lab with Petitto and her lab assistants while the second part was a live question-and-answer session with Petitto. Petitto is the science director and co-principal investigator of the National Science Foundation and Gallaudet University’s Science of Learning Center, VL2.
