About the GNC

The scientific objective of the Cognitive Neuroscience Research Group (GNC) is to further our understanding of the functional organization of the brain in central cognitive domains, including language, reading and writing, developmental dyslexia, and implicit learning. This is of central importance for both a theoretical understanding of brain function and applications in remediation and education strategies.
