Living Without a Language Instinct: Language, the Brain and Children With Specific Language Impairme

However, seven per cent of otherwise normally developing children have ‘specific language impairment’ (SLI), and many of these children have dyslexia too. SLI has a strong genetic component and for many individuals it is a life-long impairment. The long-term costs are socially, culturally, and economically high. I will present some research

Ingredients for Life - Water

Nina Jablonski Breaks the Illusion of Skin Color

Nina Jablonski is author of Skin: A Natural History, a close look at human skin’s many remarkable traits: its colors, its sweatiness, and the fact that we decorate it. Run time 14:46.

Israel: the Arab spring, domestic politics and the future of the Arab-Israeli peace process [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dr Ahron Bregman | The Arab spring has put on hold the possibility of reaching peace between Israel and Syria, thus leaving the Israeli-Palestinian peace track as the only game in town. At the same time, international efforts, led by US Secretary of State John Kerry to help Israelis and Palestinians negotiate their differences are unlikely to end the occupation and deliver a Palestinian state. The latter could only be achieved, as Ahron Bregman will argue, if three elements come toge
