About Martin Lövdén
I do research and teaching primarily in the cognitive neurosciences, with a special focus on learning and lifespan development.
The ability to learn complex skills, such as reading, playing an instruments, or flying an airplane, is behind the most remarkable achievements of humankind. For the individual, successful skill learning, for example during schooling, is of great importance for lifelong wellbeing and health. The aims of my research are therefore to discover the principle mechanisms that govern human skill learning and to understand the role that skill learning plays in lifespan development. Ultimately, I hope that the knowledge we gain will aid humans and machines to learn more efficiently.
