Every year the Crick PhD student committee invites a speaker of interest to give the special annual winter lecture. The lecture will be followed by drinks and an opportunity to catch up with with colleagues and friends.
We're delighted to welcome Usha Goswami, Director of the Centre for Neuroscience in Education at the University of Cambridge to give this year's winter lecture.
Usha Goswami CBE FRS FBA is Professor of Cognitive Developmental Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of St John’s College, Cambridge. She is also founding Director of the Centre for Neuroscience in Education.
After training as a primary school teacher, Usha decided to pursue research in child psychology, taking a D. Phil. in Psychology at the University of Oxford focused on reading development. Most recently, Usha has been studying the neural mechanisms underpinning language encoding. Her research goal is to understand the brain bases of dyslexia and speech and language difficulties, and the potential utility of music- and rhythm-based behavioural interventions.

Due to the pioneering and sensitive nature of some of the research discussed in these lectures, only Crick Lectures from selected speakers will be shared, and we ask all attendees to respect the private nature of these talks by refraining from making any type of recording, sharing access details or in any other way compromising the research that is discussed.
