Award Description: This fund is an ARRA administrative supplement to 54066D entitled, 'Language, Modality and the Brain.' The supplement provides summer research experience for students and science educators and will investigate: a) the neural substrates underlying perception of biological motion in deaf signers and b) how knowledge of sign language impacts visual motion perception. The primary aim of this supplement is to provide a gifted deaf student, Adam Stone, with hands-on research experience that will enhance his career in deaf education. To provide training in different scientific techniques and methodologies, the summer research plan focuses on two domains within the parent grant: neuroscience and cognitive science. Because all lab personnel are fluent in American Sign Language, all research activities and discussions will be accessible to Mr. Stone. The goal of this supplement is to provide Mr. Stone with first hand knowledge of how science experiments are designed, executed, analyzed, and published. Mr. Stone will be able to exploit this knowledge when he enters the field of deaf education next summer.
