You're invited to join the Rush Hour Research series, intended to engage teachers with current research from the University of Birmingham. We extend a warm welcome to education colleagues from across the West Midlands and look forward to sharing some inspiring intellectual input along with tea, cake and networking.

The University of Birmingham School is excited to welcome Doctor Krott for our next Rush Hour Research talk. Andrea Krott is a psycholinguist interested in language acquisition and the neural underpinning of language processing. Her current main research interest is the interplay of language acquisition and language processing with general cognitive functions.
