24 May 2012, NIAS Seminar

Title: Core Knowledge Systems, Language, and Music
Date: Thursday 24 May 2012
Time: 11:00 - 12:30
Location: NIAS Campus

How do we learn to count and listen to music? In a NIAS Seminar on 24 May, Johan Rooryck and Henkjan Honing will discuss the cognitive qualities that we share with other animals, and the ones that are uniquely human.

In this seminar, Johan Rooryck and Henkjan Honing will present some aspects of the Horizon research project Knowledge and Culture that they recently submitted to NWO for funding. In this project, they intend to study the relationship between innate cognitive capacities that are not specific for humans, so-called core knowledge systems, and innate cognitive capacities that are uniquely human, such as language and music.
