Dr Denes Szucs
Dr Denes Szucs is pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.
Szucs is a cognitive neuroscientist doing research on the representaiton of mathematics in the brain and on perceptual/motor integration and conflict detection/resolution. He is using behavioral methods, electro-physiology (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). One line of research examines the development of the representaion of magnitude in the brain. This includes research on developmental dyscalculia which is a mathematical disability in otherwise normally developing children/adults. Another line of research focuses on the separation of perceptual and motor processing and perceptual/motor conflict detection/resolution. This research combines EEG with electro-myography (EMG) and can potentially contribute to the understanding of develpmental disorders, like ADHD.
