Several members of the deafxlab will be attending and presenting at the Biennial Society for Research in Child Development in Austin TX next April. As part of the symposium on Linguistic Regulation of Executive Function: Evidence from Deaf Children, Dr. Dye will be presenting on the topic of “Does Audition Drive the Development of Domain-General Sequencing Abilities?”. Sarah Kimbley will be presenting a poster of her undergraduate thesis work titled “Temporal Sequence Processing in Deaf Children: Cross-sectional Data”. Congratulations, Sarah!
Dr. Matt Dye and Chloé Stoll – visiting Fulbright Scholar – both presented posters at the Psychonomic Society 2016 meeting in Boston in November. Dr. Dye’s poster was titled Emotional Face Processing in Deaf and Hearing Bilinguals, and Chloé’s poster was on Face Recognition, But Not Categorization Differs in Sign Language Users Irrespective of Hearing Status.
