Research Group Learning in Early Childhood

Our group explores the neurobiological principles of symbolic learning with a focus on language, reading and math. To this end, we combine behavioral experiments with MRI within longitudinal observation and intervention studies in early childhood. We are also interested in genetic and environmental/cultural diversity as sources of variability in learning and brain development.
