Dehaene will talk about the origins of uniquely human abilities such as language, math or music and explain his working hypothesis that the human brain has a special knack for recursive structures and projects on the external world.
In these lectures, he will show experiment results in natural and artificial language learning, mathematics and learning to read, which are loosely connected by the capacity to recombine information.
The Nijmegen Lectures are organised by Simon Fisher, Peter Hagoort, Floris de Lange (DI), Paula Fikkert (CLS), Ilse van den Dobbelsteen and Martina Bernhard.
