Project Investigators

The Centre for Neuroscience in Education is headed by PIs Professor Usha Goswami and Dr Dénes Szücs (both psychologists). The main research goal of the Centre is to establish the basic parameters of brain development in the cognitive skills critical for education. For example, we aim to understand how the brain functions and changes during the development of reading and maths, exploring the development of related skills such as language, memory, numerosity and attention. Scientists in the Centre also study the variations from typical developmental trajectories that characterise learning disorders such as dyslexia and dyscalculia.
