Research Summary
I am interested in how the brain processes numerical information. I use many different approaches and disciplines: fMRI, functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy, TMS, twin studies, studies of Australian aboriginal learners, typically developing learners, atypically developing learners (dyscalculics, Turner Syndrome, Williams Syndrome), patterns of dissociation in neurological patients, as well as normally competent adults. We also build neural network models of adult competence. We are trying to develop methods for helping people who have difficulty with arithmetic, including those with congenital learning difficulties (dyscalculia).
