PEN Distinguished Lecture Series

The PEN Distinguished Lecture Series in Educational Neuroscience was created in association with the Foundations Proseminar course for graduate students in the Ph.D. in Educational Neuroscience (PEN) program. Since its inception, the series has grown!

The lecture series focuses on the intersection of the Science of Learning (learning across the lifespan) and Educational Neuroscience (learning across early life). Scientists and researchers who are pioneers in the fields of Cognitive-Educational Neuroscience, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience, and Child Development come to Gallaudet University's campus to talk about their research.

Register for Upcoming Lectures

All lectures are open to the public and are video recorded for online distribution.

Development: An Update on Recent Findings Findings on the plasticity of the brain have suggested a new perspective on reading disability, especially in relation to the development and integration of the left hemisphere posterior reading system. Implications for theory and practice will be discussed. Finally, new and ongoing longitudinal studies examining gene-brain-behavior relations in high risk children are discussed.
