Periodic Reporting for period 3 - BABYRHYTHM (Oscillatory Rhythmic Entrainment and the Foundations of Language Acquisition)
Reporting period: 2019-09-01 to 2021-02-28
It is important for society because half of “late talkers”, infants who are not yet speaking by 2 years of age, will go on to develop language impairments. Currently, we have no reliable means of identifying these infants.
The overall objectives are to generate a coherent theoretically-driven dataset of cross-modal developmental neural and behavioural measures that should be applicable across European languages.
