Research Interests

Urs Maurer is a Sackler Scholar and Research Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Zurich. His research focuses on cognitive and neural aspects of language processing, especially in those processes involved in reading acquisition, dyslexia, and 2nd language learning. A central goal of his work is to understand the neural basis of individual differences in language processing and to facilitate the use of this knowledge in therapeutic and educational settings. Dr. Maurer’s research involves behavioral and functional neuroimaging techniques, such as EEG-based event-related potentials (ERP) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). He is also interested in other areas of cognitive development and skill learning, and in approaches combining different neuroimaging measures with high temporal (EEG) and high spatial (fMRI) resolution.
