Café Scientifique with Professor Sophie Scott, as part of the 2013 Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition.
How does the brain process the information we hear? Can the brain re-learn how to understand text and speech? Explore with cognitive neuroscientist Professor Sophie Scott the science behind language therapy to assess how people who have lost their speech ability, such as stroke sufferers, are able to regain their language skills.Professor Sophie Scott FMedSci is based at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London. Her research focuses on the neurobiology of how the brain perceives speech and other sounds and how it can recover after illness or injury.
