Centre for Neuroscience in Education

 

Dr. Dénes Szűcs is the Deputy Director of the Centre for Neuroscience in Education, a Reader in Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology and a Fellow of Darwin College, University of Cambridge.

Biography

Shortly after receiving his PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience from Eötvös Loránd University, Dénes joined the University of Cambridge as a lecturer. It was also at Eötvös Loránd University that he was awarded his MA in Experimental Psychology (5-year MA degree).

Dénes has previously been a Research Fellow at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology, Hungarian Academy of Sciences. He has been a visiting professor at both Stanford University and University of Padua.

Research

His research is primarily concerned with mathematical understanding and development, including mathematics anxiety (including gender differences), dyscalculia, and gifted mathematics. Dénes is also very interested in modern research methodology and in the meta-analysis of the published neuroscience and psychology literature.
