Dr. Laura Ann Petitto is a Cognitive Neuroscientist and a Developmental Cognitive Neuroscientist widely known for her discoveries about the biological foundations of language. She has uncovered key brain structures underlying early human language processing and, with brain imaging technology called functional Near-infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), she has tracked the typical and atypical development of these brain structures across the human lifespan (infants through adults).

Organizer

NIRx Medical Technologies; Gallaudet University; the National Science Foundation-Gallaudet Science of Learning Center, Visual Language & Visual Learning (VL2); and the Gallaudet PhD in Educational Neuroscience (PEN) program

This event is being co-organized and sponsored by NIRx Medical Technologies; Gallaudet University; the National Science Foundation-Gallaudet Science of Learning Center, Visual Language & Visual Learning (VL2); and the Gallaudet University PhD in Educational Neuroscience (PEN) program. 

NIRx Medical Technologies
NIRx Medical Technologies is a global leader in the development of versatile multi-modal fNIRS imaging systems.  Scientific consultation is supported by a staff of experienced NIRS researchers, as well as local distribution partners that help ensure consistent face time with clients.  With over 80 labs in the US already using NIRx systems, more and more labs are adopting this new, yet effective technique to expand on their publications.

NSF-Gallaudet University Science of Learning Center, Visual Language & Visual Learning, VL2
The purpose of the NSF-Gallaudet University Science of Learning Center, Visual Language & Visual Learning (VL2) is to advance fundamentally the Science of Learning specifically involving how aspects of human higher cognition are realized through one of our most central senses, vision. We seek to determine the effects of visual processes, visual language, and social experience on the development of cognition, language, reading and literacy for the benefit of all humans. We especially pursue new perspectives on these learning processes through the widened vantage point of studying deaf individuals and sign language as a window into the flexibility and structure of the human mind. We study these learning processes in monolinguals and bilinguals across the lifespan in order to promote optimal practices in education in both formal and informal settings.

Gallaudet University PhD Program in Educational Neuroscience (PEN)
Students in Gallaudet's pioneering PEN program gain state-of-the-art Cognitive Neuroscience training in how humans learn, with a special strength in the neuroplasticity of visually guided learning processes. While Cognitive Neuroscience includes studies of learning and higher cognitive processes across the lifespan, its sister discipline, Educational Neuroscience, includes intensive study of five core domains that are crucial in early childhood learning, including language and bilingualism, reading and literacy, math and numeracy, science and critical thinking (higher cognition), social and emotional learning, and includes study of action and visual processing. PEN students become expert in one of the world's cutting-edge neuroimaging methods in the discipline of Cognitive Neuroscience (e.g., fNIRS, EEG, fMRI, and beyond), study Neuroethics, gain strong critical analysis and reasoning skills in science, and develop expertise in one of the core content areas of learning identified above. While becoming experts in both contemporary neuroimaging and behavioral experimental science, students also learn powerful, meaningful, and principled ways that science can be translated for the benefit of education and society today.
