About the speaker
Frank Wijnen is a professor in Language processing and language pathology at Utrecht University. He is a psycholinguist with a special interest in language acquisition and developmental disorders. His work revolves around the (neuro)cognitive foundation of the acquisition of language in very young children. One of the mechanisms he studies is statistical learning, the process by which organisms extract statistical patterns from sequences of stimuli arranged in time or space.
