Educational Neuroscience & Developmental Dyslexia

MRC, 2011-2016 (Phase 2), £1.5M

Professor Usha Goswami (PI), Dr Denes Szucs (co-PI), Dr Ian Winter (Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience), Dr Matt Davis (MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit)

January 2011 - June 2016, Medical Research Council (£1.5M)

Developmental dyslexia (DD) affects 7% of school children and presents a major obstacle to educational success. In this project we adopt an educational neuroscience approach to better understand the potential sensory and neural causes of DD, using behavioural, physiological and neuroimaging approaches.
