We are happy to invite you to our Israel Science Foundation Workshop, First vs. Second Language Learning: From Neurobiology to Cognition, to be held at the Hebrew University, Mt. Scopus, 26th-28th of September, 2016. The main focus of the proposed workshop is to discuss how learning mechanisms operate online to gradually extract the statistical structure of a second language vs. first language, and how specific statistical properties of a novel language are perceived and assimilated by the brain. The workshop will present theoretically motivated cognitive and neural investigations of first and second language learning.
VenueMaeirsdorf Faculty Club, room 405, Mt. Scopus.
