If you want to know more about what happens in our brain when we read or you are interested in how the brain is both shaped by and has had a role in shaping language, this would be a wonderful seminar to attend. On February 19, 2015 Stanislas Dehaene will deliver a special seminar – “The Multiple Effects of Literacy on the Brain” at the Montreal Neurological Institute Jeanne Timmins Amphitheatre, 3801 rue University, Montreal, QC. I would attend if I could! CLICK here to download an article written by Dr. Dehaene that will give you a taste of what he is sure to discuss – The Massive Impact of Literacy on the Brain and its Consequences for Education.
