University of Washington Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences Launches Developing Mind Project
Date:5/24/2010

ciences Discovery Fund">Washington State Life Sciences Discovery Fund, and generous contributions from the University of Washington and philanthropists in the Pacific Northwest. There are few MEG machines in the United States and, in collaboration with scientists at Elekta Neuromag in Helsinki (MEG manufacturer), the UW scientists have achieved what no other laboratory in the world has done. They have customized the scientific designs for babies and developed MEG measures that allow testing of infants and young children as they listen to people talk and act naturally with people and things in their environment. The one-ton machine operates silently and can spatially and temporally map the mental activity of an infant only a few days old, providing important data into how, where and when human learning happens. “MEG is the only whole-brain imaging technology that can be used at all ages to examine learning over a lifetime. Over the next decade it will provide a very powerful tool for exploring the human mind and how people learn,” said Kuhl, co-director of I-LABS.
   
“I-LABS research is critical both for new discoveries about human learning and for improving the early diagnosis of children with medical syndromes such as autism,” said Lee Huntsman, Executive Director, Washington State Life Sciences Discovery Fund. “The MEG Brain Imaging Center will dramatically expand this scientific horizon, cement Washington's leadership in the field and benefit all our community’s children.” Studies have shown that every $1 spent in early learning saves $7-14 in remedial and penal expenditures.
