Neurobiology of Language Conference: Huzzah for Amanda Garcia

Our PhD student, Amanda Garcia, had a paper accepted to the NLC conference in Amsterdam. This was fascinating work examining lexical acquisition and lexical access for words acquired at different points across the lifespan (e.g., learning object names and proper nouns like slinky, flashdrive, 8-track, Elvis and Katy Perry).  Amanda also won one of the society's coveted travel fellowships.  She's an awesome scholar, and we could not be more proud. Go Amanda!
