Werker, J. Precursors to language acquisition in infancy - speech perception, early word learning, cognitive development, and parent-infant communication. Infants from hours after birth up to toddler hood are studied using both behavioural and electrophysiological (ERP) techniques. These processes are also studied in infants growing up bilingual, and in infants with, or at risk for, developmental disabilities. Adult studies focus on speech perception and lexical processing of both spoken language and visual speech, and involve behavioural and neuroimaging studies.
