Language acquisition in typically developing children and children with a

The general goal of the colloquium is to promote research on early language

phonological, lexical, semantic and syntactic levels. More specifically, the
colloquium will cover the following topics:

- Theoretical perspectives in language acquisition
- Genetic/environmental contributions to language acquisition
- Brain structure and functions involved in language processing in infants and
- Language delays and impairments

A secondary aim of the colloquium is to promote the careers of junior scientists
