Educational Neuroscience (PEN) Distinguished Lecture Series – Bedny

How does a difference in sensory input change a person’s development?

Dr. Marina Bedny conducts fascinating research into how blindness affects brain organization, language, and the construction of abstract concepts. For example, what do blind adults know about vision-related terms like “sparkling” and “flashing?” How do blind children acquire such concepts? Dr. Bedny’s work uses brain imaging to ask these questions, revealing astounding insights about the nature of human perception and sensation.
