The linguistic genius of babies

Title:
The linguistic genius of babies
Speaker:
Patricia Kuhl
Description:

Patricia Kuhl shares astonishing findings about how babies learn one language over another -- by listening to the humans around them and "taking statistics" on the sounds they need to know. Clever lab experiments (and brain scans) show how 6-month-old babies use sophisticated reasoning to understand their world.
