Summary of research

Brain plasticity, individual differences and learning, specifically in numerical cognition. numerical representations in the human parietal cortex, relation between number and other quantity skills –ie, time and space. Cognitive and neurobiological basis of residual number skills in healthy ageing, in congenital (ie, in dyscalculia), permanent brain lesions, and reversible brain ‘lesions’ (with TMS), learning in young and ageing brain (with brain stimulation).
