Academic background

I am a cognitive neuro-psychologist

Research interests

I investigate high-level human cognitive functions using experimental psychology, neuropsychology, and electrophysiological approaches (Event-Related Potential Technique - ERP). Our main courses of research: • Number processing • Development • Dyscalculia • Math anxiety • ADHD • ERP and GSR Our aim is to better understand computations throughout the brain and the cognitive system, and to be able to contribute to the predictive markers of intact and deficient development of numerical skills. We wish to shed light on the important issue of how numerical intuitions can be fostered by classroom practice in typical as well as atypical (e.g., dyscalculia and math anxiety) developing children.
