Join us for our second Distinguished Science of Learning Fellowship Showcase

SLI's fellowship program provides funding for pre- and post-doctoral students to enhance their training by (1) conducting interdisciplinary science of learning research and (2) learning to effectively communicate science to the public. As a capstone to their 2-year fellowship, our fellows will showcase their research projects and their approach to disseminating findings to the public.   

Learn about exciting work from:

  • Bob Wiley, Department of Cognitive Science and School of Education  

"How Letters Are Taught Affects Their Neural Representation"

  • Amanda Therrien, Department of Neuroscience and Kennedy Krieger Institute

"Reinforcement Training: A New Approach for Motor Learning Following Cerebellar Damage"

"Learning to Correct Movement Errors by the Purkinje Cells of the Cerebellum"

Hors d'oeuvres, beer, and wine will be served.
