Did you know that these great minds and you had something in common?They are all DYSLEXIC which cause difficulties in reading and writing. Would you like to be a part of a research which could be life changing for Dyslexics? If so, are you? Diagnosed as Dyslexic by a psychologist? 18 years and above? Right-handed? Have normal or corrected to normal vision or hearing? Fluent in English? No medical history relating to epilepsy? This study will involve reading and writing related tasks to be performed while wearing an EEG device. The outcome of the research will be an improved classification framework to differentiate the dyslexics and non-dyslexics using Electroencephalogram (EEG), which detects the brain electrical activity. It is a very safe test; it records signals coming from the brain using sensors and at no time is any electrical current put into the brain. This research may complement the current dyslexia detection techniques.

Did you know that they had a DISABILITY? They are all DYSLEXIC which cause difficulties in reading and writing. Would you as a HEALTHY INDIVIDUAL like to be a part of a research which could be life changing for Dyslexics? If so, are you? Free from motor or neurological conditions such as Dyslexia, ADHD, and Autism etc.? 18 years and above? Right-handed? Have normal or corrected to normal vision or hearing? Fluent in English? No medical history relating to epilepsy? This study will involve reading and writing related tasks to be performed while wearing an EEG device.

About the Research in 3 Minutes


3MT Final 2014 "Dyslexia Detection using EEG"

3MT is an academic competition that challenges research students (PhD and MPhil) to explain their research project to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes. Speakers represented 48 Universities in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.

More Useful Information

  • What is Dyslexia?

  • Dyslexia is a disability with a neurological origin, which causes difficulties in reading, writing and spelling despite normal or above average intelligence levels. It is a heritable condition, but not a disease or detect that can be cured, rather a state that can he helped with targeted assistance.


  • What is an EEG?

  • An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in your brain using small, flat metal discs (electrodes) attached to your scalp.

    It is a very safe test; it records signals coming from the brain and at no time is any electrical current put into the brain or body.


  • What is the device used?

  • The device used in this research for collecting brain waves is the Cognionics 32-Channel Dry EEG Headset System

    EEG Device
