This symposium presents important recent findings concerning the development of linguistic abilities in infants and young children. The speakers will describe research that uses behavioral, brain imaging, and computational methods to reveal basic principles of language development in hearing, deaf, and developmentally disabled children. At a broader level, their research provides new insights into the interplay of linguistic, perceptual, and motor development and into the nature and implications of neural plasticity.
