Dr Kanad Mandke

Interests

I am a Research Associate at the Centre for Neuroscience in Education, Department of Psychology. My research interests include the analysis of brain networks and understanding the neurophysiological basis of speech processing in children. To this end, I primarily use a brain imaging technique known as magnetoencephalography (MEG).

MEG measures tiny magnetic fields generated by the brain at the surface of scalp. In our typical experiments, participants listen to stories or rhythmic sounds while we record changes in their brain waves. Our goal is to understand these mechanisms better and develop potential remediation strategies for children with dyslexia.
