Online videos

Watch this short video about the amazing linguistic abilities of babies. This Ted talk is delivered by Patricia Kuhl,  Professor of Speech and Hearing Sciences and co-director of the Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences at the University of Washington.  Prof 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. (Source: TEDxRainier, October 2010)
