Professor Usha Goswami
I am the Director of the Centre for Neuroscience in Education. The Centre uses EEG and fNIRS to explore the developing brain. Key research projects include the neural basis of developmental dyslexia, the neural basis of speech and language impairments, and the neural basis of rhythmic motor behaviour. Funding comes from the MRC, EU Framework VI, the ESRC and The Leverhulme Trust.
