Dyslexia in children

23 April 2014

The University of Groningen is celebrating its 400th anniversary. The festivities include the For Infinity exhibition. The exhibition concentrates on the major questions, the 'infinite questions', in academia, such as questions about cognition, development and learning. These were studied in the past by Wilhelmina Bladergroen (1908-1983), and today by linguist Frans Zwarts, a former Rector Magnificus of the University of Groningen. He conducted research into children with dyslexia.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
