Morton Kondracke, of Roll Call, highlights importance of I-LABS research as early learning takes national stage in State of the Union Address

Journalist Morton Kondracke writes in today’s Roll Call, urging legislators to attend I-LABS Co-Directors Kuhl and Meltzoff's congressional briefing on Wednesday, February 27th from 9:00 to 10:30am EST:

"Anyone on Capitol Hill who questions the potential benefits—or others just interested—can attend a mind-bending presentation at 9 a.m. Wednesday at SVC201 in the Capitol Visitor Center hosted by a bipartisan group of 12 lawmakers.

I’ve seen the show and it’s dazzling. Drs. Patricia Kuhl and Andrew Meltzoff have a machine at the University of Washington — a magnetoencephalograph — that records the real-time brain activity of young children."
