"Speech Perception and Early Word Learning: Multisensory Foundations" by Janet Werker
Janet Werker, from the University of British Columbia, will be presenting on how infants perceive speech through non-auditory modalities. Speech perception is multisensory from early in life, and different perceptual systems support speech processing development. Werker will explain whether they are linked from early in life, and review the rapid changes in auditory, visual, and multimodal speech perception that occur in the first months of life, and then review research investigating if and how this trajectory is different when information is available (or removed) from one of these modalities.
Where: 16 October, 12:30-2pm, PMU West Faculty Lounge.
