Nina Politimou hosts a Psychology Research Seminar about her PhD examining the relationship between musical and linguistic abilities in 3- and 4-year old children.

Research on the relationship between formal musical training and linguistic abilities has been burgeoning over the last decade. However, a significant gap can be found when looking at the beginning of the developmental path of such abilities: whereas something is known about infants and a significant amount has been learned about school-aged children, very little is known about pre-schoolers. 

Aiming to fill this gap, Nina's PhD research has moved along two interlocking paths - on the one hand, studying the early relationship between processing of both music and language, and on the other, bringing into the discussion a dimension so far unexplored, that is the influence of informal musical interactions and the children's home environment.

In this Psychology Research Seminar, titled "Musical and Linguistic Processing in Young Children: The Role of the Home Musical Environment", Nina will present and discuss findings from her research so far.

All are welcome and there is no need to book in advance.
