Title - Associations Between Caregiver Speech and Language Related White Matter Microstructure in Infants

Speaker: Sharnya Govindaraj
PhD Student, UT Dallas

Several studies have established that home language environments and caregiver speech are associated with infant language skills. However, no previous research has focused on the role of the brain in this association. In our study, we found significant relationships between the quantity of caregiver speech and language-specific white matter microstructure in infants aged 0 – 2 years.
