Two DCAL associates, Dr David Vinson (UCL Cognitive Perceptual & Brain Sciences) and Dr Evelyne Mercure (UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience) have been awarded Future Leader Fellowships by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) from a total of 54 awards made nationally. The scheme aims to support early career social scientists by funding research projects, and providing researchers with an opportunity to develop the skills and experience they need to become leaders in their field.

David's project is "Making sense from the hands and mouth: multimodal integration in spoken and signed languages". Evelyne's project is "Influence of early experience of speech and language on their processing and neural representation: a study of hearing infants with deaf mothers".
