At our research center, we research the fascinating realm of numerical development, including the early stages of mathematical growth. Our keen interest lies in understanding the foundations of mathematical abilities that emerge at a young age, as they serve as building blocks for the development of advanced numerical skills later in life.

We seek to enhance the comprehension of brain computations and the cognitive system, leading to predictive indicators of numerical skill development in both typical and atypical (e.g., dyscalculia and math anxiety) developing children.

Through our research, we aspire to shed light on the facilitation of numerical intuitions in classrooms, contributing to improved educational practices for children’s cognitive growth and development.
