Collaborators

All researchers from Sweden are part of the Gothenburg AMBLE, including the following Departments/Institutions at the University of Gothenburg : Institution for Education and Special Education, Department for Psychology, National Center for Mathematics Education and Institution for Neuroscience and Physiology.

AMBLE has taken collaborative actions aiming at identifying common research goals and developing new research strategies employing cognitive brain research for educational goals. The AMBLE consortium has taken an initiative to create a Nordic Network for the Integration of Neuroscience in Educational Research (NONINER) with the aim to bring together scientists from neuroscience, psychology and education in order to jointly develop and apply neuroscience technologies and help Nordic research teams exchange knowledge and to build a common platform for future collaborative actions and joint research projects. AMBLE colleborates with the following persons;

  • Professor Mikael Elam and Assistant Professor Magnus Thordstein, Department of Clinical Neurophysiology and MedTech West (www.medtechwest.se), Sahlgrenska University hospital; experienced clinical neurophysiologists and experts in the application of EEG/ERP.
  • Paavo Leppänen, Prof in Education, Dep of Psychology, Centre for Interdisciplinary Brain Research/Research Forum of Learning Difficulties, University of Jyväskylä, Finland; highly experienced in the using EEG/ERP to investigate neural processes involved in reading related skills.
  • Sara Lloyd-Fox, Ph. D., Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck, University of London, London, United Kingdom; experienced in using fNIR in research and more specifically the investigation of cortical responses to the perception of social and human action cues in children.
  • Dénes Szucs, Ph. D., Centre for Neuroscience in Education, Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom; highly experienced in applying EEG and fNIR in cognitive research. His research focus on neural basis of number processing and arithmetic disabilities as well as cognitive control and its development in children.
  • Erik Olsson, Ph. D., Institute of Psychiatry and Neurochemistry, Department of Neuroscience & physiology, The Sahlgrenska academy, Gothenburg University, Sweden; responsible for the volumetric analyses of brain structures using MRI scans.
  • Anton Thynell, project leader, West Sweden Chamber of Commerce: responsible for the math intervention “mathivation”.
  • Hellmuth Obrig, Professor, Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig, Germany
  • Robert J Cooper, PhD, Research Associate, Biomedical Optics research Laboratory, University College London, United Kingdom
