The event brings 15 internationally renowned scholars to campus to discuss cutting-edge research addressing the mental representation, processing, development/acquisition and neurocognitive underpinnings of number and quantification in human language.

This event, sponsored by The New York Community Trust, is part of the Alice V. and Dave H. Morris International Symposium on Language and Communication. The Morris Memorial Fund supports the symposium, which draws eminent scientists from around the globe to Long Island to discuss fundamental issues in, and implications of, current research in human language.
