The focus of our research group lies in understanding the mechanisms underlying symbolic and non-symbolic number processes. We specifically try to investigate their neural underpinnings, their relation to mathematical abilities and their development. In doing so we use behavioral as well as neuroimaging methods (electroencephalography and functional magnetic resonance imaging) in adults and children with or without mathematical difficulties. Through this research we aim to get insight in the precursors for mathematical abilities and to develop intervention programs.
