University of Washington launches project to discover fundamentals of early learning
Date:5/24/2010

The University of Washington Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences (I-LABS) announced today the launch of a multi-year, multimillion-dollar initiative to foster new brain research discoveries and insights into how and when children learn. Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire, University of Washington President Mark Emmert and I-LABS co-directors Dr. Patricia Kuhl and Dr. Andrew Meltzoff officially opened the new $7 million I-LABS MEG Brain Imaging Center on the University of Washington campus, hosting the first brain imaging device in the world optimized for neuroscientific study in infants and young children.

"The University of Washington I-LABS continues to be a global leader in the science of child development," said Gov. Chris Gregoire. "The potential for the MEG center is incredible. It will help us look inside the minds of our youngest learners and better understand just what happens during those earliest years, so we can best support kids in growing up ready to learn and succeed."

By enabling new scientific discoveries in early learning and brain development, crafting actionable recommendations based on those results, and helping to educate policymakers, teachers and parents, I-LABS will accelerate the cycle from discovery to practice in early learning. I-LABS' activities are expected to boost the growing national awareness of the value of early-learning investments and of the impact that changes in pre-school and child support services can have on school readiness and lifelong learning.

The Developing Mind Project marries the expertise and vision of a world-class research team led by Professors Kuhl and Meltzoff with new brain-imaging technology. With the world's first brain-imaging facility focused on children as they think, feel, act, and listen to languages, I-LABS will use innovative techniques to provide a view into the youngest of brains and a glimpse into the origins of learning. The discoveries will be sh
