Adele Diamond, Ph.D., is the Canada Research Chair Professor of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of British Columbia. Her work integrates developmental, cognitive, neuroscience and molecular genetic approaches to examine fundamental questions about the development of the cognitive control abilities that rely on a region of the brain known as ‘prefrontal cortex’. Her recent work, including a paper in the journal Science is affecting early education practices around the world. In this talk Diamond responds to Aurélien Froment’s exhibition.
The Feedback Series invites cultural and critical producers to present thoughts and ideas rooted in their own interests and practices and invites audiences to join in the conversations that will explore relevant contemporary issues, theories, ideas and culture.
