Presidential Special Lectures feature:

  • James Rothman, PhD, Yale University School of Medicine, discusses efforts to understand the brains machinery for cell communication.
  • Carla Shatz, PhD, Stanford University, explores critical developmental periods, and how manipulating them has relevance not only for understanding brain wiring and developmental disorders, but also for enhancing recovery from injury.
  • Janet F. Werker, PhD, The University of British Columbia, addresses how exposure to language in the womb affects the brain and subsequent language development.
  • Simon E. Fisher, DPhil, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, will discuss our gift of gab, and research uncovering critical genes involved in speech and language.
