Our lab investigates neural mechanisms underlying language processing with a focus on reading acquisition, reading across cultures, and dyslexia. We are specialized on topographic analyses of EEG data, and use this technique in combination with eye-tracking and fMRI.


Our aim is to understand how the brain processes visual words and written text. We want to make use of this knowledge to improve early identification of dyslexia and to develop and evaluate dyslexia intervention programs.
