4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Jerome L. Greene Science Center, 3227 Broadway, New York, NY 10027 (L7-119)

Sarah Woolley has helped decode how the brain interprets vocalizations and what happens during development when those sounds are disrupted. Her research could shed important light on developmental disorders associated with speech and communication.

Speaker
Sarah Woolley, Professor of Psychology, Columbia University; Principal Investigator, Zuckerman Institute

Growing Up in Science is a seminar series initiated at NYU by Drs. Wei Ji Ma and Cristina Alberini in 2014. The speakers of this series do not talk about their science; they talk about the human side of becoming and being a scientist. They share their successes as well as the struggles, weaknesses, detours, and failures.

This seminar is part of the Growing Up in Science seminar series, organized by the Zuckerman Institute and the Columbia University Postdoctoral Society. For questions about this or future seminars, please contact series organizers Bianca Jones MarlinChiara Bertipaglia, or Rainer Engelken.
