I have the great privilege of working with all the brilliant people in this lab on exciting questions such as: how do children develop a sense of number? What are the brain circuits that enable us to enumerate and calculate? Why do some children struggle with even the most basic aspects of number processing while other excel? What is the relationship between numerical cognition and other competencies, such as reading, memory and executive functions? To answer these and other questions we use both behavioral and brain-imaging methods (such as event-related brain potentials and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging).
The goals of our research projects are to both answer basic scientific question as well as to generate data that could inform educational challenges such as diagnosis of mathematical difficulties as well as their remediation. In this vein, we committed to the recent efforts to connect Cognitive Neuroscience and Education as part of the emerging fields of ‘Educational Neuroscience’ and ‘Mind, Brain and Education’.
