Bridging biology and computation in the service of understanding how language evolved. Gary Marcus

Thursday, 4 September, 2014 - 09:30 to 11:00

Absent a time machine we may never know exactly why language - a cognitive system that leaves no direct fossils - evolved, but with deeply integrated, interdisciplinary approach, drawing on genetics, neuroscience, linguiistics, psychology, and computation, there is some hope that we might reconstruct how language evolved: what genetic innovations were there?
