Professor Usha Goswami in Radio Interview with Naked Scientists

The team Researchers: Usha Goswami, Adam Attaheri, Perrine Brusini and Natasha Mead

Professor Usha Goswami, Director of the Centre for Neuroscience in Education, is featured in the recent Naked Scientist podcast ‘The Lowdown on Language’, and on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire. In the interview she describes her novel research on infant language acquisition.  

In 2016, Usha Goswami was awarded ERC funding to examine rhythm processing in early development, specifically during infancy. “Learning how the typically-developing brain processes rhythm from the “get-go”, across the senses of hearing, vision and limb movement, should eventually help us to improve language learning for all children - and in all languages.” The CNE BabyRhythm project is a 5 year longitudinal study, following the development of 100 babies from 2 months to 2 and a half years old.
