Research activity

The main issues under investigation are the cognitive and neural bases of attentional-emotional and literacy development, as well as the impact of socioeconomic status, genetic factors and training across typically and atypically developing children.

The research activity will be developed by research teams grouped around 6 central issues critical to this project.

  • The first topic focuses on attention development and emotional self-regulation and the impact of these on learning.
  • The second topic focuses on word reading.
  • The third topic focuses on text comprehension.
  • The fourth topic focuses on the effects of culture and environment on literacy.
  • The fifth topic focuses on the link between the genetic, neuronal and cognitive-behavioural levels.
  • The sixth topic focuses on the development of computer-based tools for diagnosis and training in attention and literacy.

These six work-packages will be carried out by four teams
