Project Description

My earlier research has highlighted the fact that dyslexic individuals tend to have weaknesses in procedural and/or statistical learning, whereas their declarative learning ability is unimpaired or above average. I have developed a range of ‘primitive learning’ tests and intend to undertake cognitive neuroscience projects aimed at identifying the underlying causes, and evaluating interventions designed to improve the underlying learning abilities.
