F67 The Deaf Brain 2023

Description

This is an introductory course aimed at those with no previous knowledge of neuroscience. Concepts with be introduced from basic levels, and the student will be progressively guided from simple to more complex ideas.

You will be introduced to basic concepts about brain function, and how these are influenced by deafness, and the acquisition of a language through vision (i.e. sign language and lip-reading).

We will present state of the art results from original research from DCAL and other international research groups with particular emphasis on:

  • Early deafness
  • Sign language processing in deaf and hearing signers
  • The effects of bimodal bilingualism
  • Age of language acquisition
  • Long-term consequences of delayed language exposure
  • Cognitive skills
  • Implications for cochlear implants

We will also provide an overview of state of the art research methods and neuroimaging techniques used to investigate cognitive functions in the deaf population.
