To investigate children’s linguistic knowledge, our researchers employ different kinds of experimental techniques but the experiments are always embedded in games that are fun for children.
To make the MEG experience as child-friendly as possible, researchers in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders have created the idea of an MEG space adventure.
The first MEG system in the Southern Hemisphere, the world’s first child MEG system and the world’s first MEG brain imaging system for people with hearing devices – the KIT-MQ Brain Research Laboratory is a hub of innovation.
Since 2011, Professor O’Reilly has been Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Core to Crust Fluid Systems and previously, of the associated GEMOC National Key Centre since 1995.
Professor Griffin came to Australia in 1986 to join CSIRO, becoming Chief Research Scientist in a short time. He then helped to establish the GEMOC ARC Key Centre at Macquarie, and was the Leader of Industry Interaction and Technology Development.
Ms Hannah Rapaport is conducting her honours research using an ultrasound technique that is sensitive to the metabolic demands of cognitive processes. Functional Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound assesses the sound of blood-flow to the brain.
Diamonds are produced in the mantle by super-high pressure which can be reached only under the very thick continents. The more ancient the continent, the more thicker the lithosphere and the more chances to have diamonds there.
Distinguished Professor Katherine Demuth is internationally recognised for her ground-breaking research in the area of child language acquisition. The work she leads at the Child Language Lab is unique in Australia.
Professor Anne Castles is recognised as a Distinguished Professor of Macquarie University for her outstanding contribution to research, teaching and service in the field of reading in Cognitive Science.
Distinguished Professor Stephen Crain’s research is in three areas of the psychology of language: child language acquisition, adult language processing, and neurolinguistics.
