Caroline Rowland is Director of the Language Development Department at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, Professor of First Language Acquisition at Radboud University. Her research focuses on how children learn to communicate with language, how the developing brain supports this process, and how it is affected by cross-linguistic, cultural and individual variation. She takes a multiple methods approach -  experimental work, naturalistic data analysis and computer modelling – to test the predictions of different models of the child’s learning mechanism.

Gabriella Vigliocco is Professor of the Psychology of Language in the Department of Experimental Psychology at University College London. Her research concerns the psychological and neural mechanisms of human language with a special emphasis on how conceptual and linguistic information are integrated. She also explores issues surrounding language in a social context: how language enables humans to share experiences, how language users learn to associate words with meaning, and how this is accomplished in the brain.
