Creating bilingual minds | Naja Ferjan Ramirez | TEDxLjubljana

Dr. Naja Ferjan Ramirez is a researcher studying the brain processing of language in infants and young children. In her talk, she showcases the latest techniques to study the infant brain and explains why all babies have the full potential to learn two languages at the same time. She discusses the benefits of bilingual environments for language and brain development and describes what it takes to create bilingual minds. Dela na Inštitutu za učenje in možganske znanosti univerze Washington v Seattlu. Na univerzo Brown v Združenih državah, kjer je doštudirala nevroznanost, so jo v rani mladosti pripeljali odlični športni rezultati v teku na 400 in 800 m z ovirami. Doktorirala je iz lingvistike in kognitivnih znanosti na univerzi v Kaliforniji, v San Diegu. Kasneje jo je pot ponesla v Seattle. Tam danes dela in živi s svojo družino, v kateri se uspešno sporazumevajo v kar treh jezikih - slovenskem, španskem in agleškem. Trenutno raziskuje, kako elastični in dojemljivi za učenje tujega jezika so možgani otrok od rojstva do tretjega leta starosti. Najzanimivejše ugotovitve s tega področja bo 4. decembra v Cankarjevem domu delila z nami.

How to triple your memory by using this trick | Ricardo Lieuw On | TEDxHaarlem

As a teenager, Ricardo Lieuw On was packing groceries when he knew what he wanted to study: he wanted to learn about learning. He picked up a study in psychology and learned how to reduce his learning time from 3 hours to 1 hour on the same piece of content. He gained the same knowledge in 200% less time. And specially for TEDxHaarlem, he shares the secret of his technique. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
