Denes Szucs is a Senior Lecturer in, and Deputy Director of, the Centre for Neuroscience in Education, in the Department of Psychology at the University of Cambridge. He is a cognitive neuroscientist using behavioural and various brain activity measures to conclude about mental function.
He is using non-invasive electrophysiology (EEG/ERP), electro-myography (EMG), near-infrared functional imaging (fNIRS) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). He has two major lines of research. First, he examines the neural basis of number processing and arithmetic disabilities (developmental dyscalculia) in both adults and children. Second, he examines cognitive control and its development in both adults and children.
