Research

Our research is mainly conducted at the University of Luxembourg in close collaboration with Luxembourgish schools, the Luxembourgish ministry of education, and international universities. We mainly explore the neurocognitive processes related to learning: These are mental operations – such as phonological processes or executive functions – that children need in order to learn effectively. We also study the atypical development of these important processes. More particularly, we are trying to understand why some children suffer from specific learning difficulties (for example dyslexia or dyscalculia). To further our understanding of these learning mechanisms we use a range of methods and populations: We conduct, among others, cognitive assessments with children in schools or measure more directly how the brain functions using electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) techniques.

On this blog, you’ll find a short description on recent research findings or ongoing projects  that we think are important for the learn-community.
