- Developmental aspects of typical and atypical numerical cognition
I am interested in how children develop number concepts and how they become proficient in arithmetic. Specifically, I am interested in the cognitive processes and the brain systems that are involved when manipulating numerical information. By understanding how typical learners process and manipulate numerical information I also try to understand how these are impaired in children with math learning disability.
In my research I use both behavioral and neuroimaging methods for their potential in offering complementary answers on the cognitive components involved when manipulating numerical information.

Click on the title to check out these pictures from the classroom remodeling project in the basement. A second project to replace the elevators will begin in September. Beginning with the freight elevator, each elevator will be out of service for three months. To get quickly from one floor to another, and improve your fitness, we will encourage the use of the stairs. The repainting of the northeast stairwell has been completed, and the painter is starting on the southwest stairwell. The repainted stairwell looks astonishingly better. Be sure to thank Rick, the painter, who has been working hard on the repainting for many weeks.
