Working together on this project are a network of renowned scientists who combine the methods of developmental-educational psychology, cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, genetics and information technologies.

The general and specific aims of the project are:

  • To understand developmental, behavioral, neural, genetic and environmental constraints on mechanisms of learning.
  • To investigate the cognitive processes and neural correlates of attention, self-regulation, visual word recognition and text comprehension.
  • To identify the underlying causes of individual differences in these processes, with special attention to immigrant populations in Spain.
  • To provide guidelines for appropriate diagnosis and classification of learning disorders (in particular ADHD and/or Dyslexia)
  • To identify methods for training attention, literacy and comprehension and to specify the brain changes produced by these training methods.
  • To develop instructional software and materials for training attention, word reading and text comprehension skills.
