Our research investigates the development of language, numeracy, literacy and associated development disorders, the development of attention and executive functions and associated development disorders, emotional development.
We use a range of methodologies including behavioural experiments, intervention studies, computational modelling, eye movement analysis, MRI, MEG, tDCS, EEG, behavioural and molecular genetics.
We work closely with local schools, teachers, families and speech and language therapists, as well as with charities supporting children with developmental disorders (e.g. Fragile X Association, Dyslexia Action, AFASIC). We also participate in discussions with policy makers, assessing the efficacy of interventions and publishing diagnostics tests of reading and language.
