Fully Funded PhD Scholarship in Psychology at the University of Sheffield

This is one of many projects in competition for the current funding opportunities available within the Department of Psychology

Project title: Cognitive neuroscience of dyslexia and related learning disabilities

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.

Start date: 1 October 2017
