Center for the Study of Learning

About Us

At The Center for the Study of Learning (CSL), we investigate the neural basis of learning and its disorders.

Our mission is to conduct research that will shed light on the causes and effects of learning disorders, so that better programs for diagnosis and treatment can be developed. We combine neuroscience and clinical practice to study a range of developmental disorders, including dyslexia and dyscalculia. We also study how typical learning occurs to better understand the problems encountered by individuals with learning difficulties.

Through this work we hope to enhance the academic and social quality of life of children and adults affected by learning challenges.
