April Benasich, professor of neuroscience and director of the Infancy Studies Laboratory at Rutgers--Newark's Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience, is learning how the brains of young children—even babies just 2 to 4 months old—process sounds and acquire language.
Ultimately, these studies could lead to innovative techniques for recognizing potential learning problems early in a child's development and crafting remediation tools to correct language processing difficulties even before babies start to talk.
