About the Project
Working Memory (WM) and its components play a fundamental role in mathematical achievement but their role in developing symbolic processing skills is yet unclear. This project has two aims: (1) To uncover how the involvement of WM and its components in symbolic processing changes with development and (2) To increase our understanding into how the language that we speak affects our WM and numerical cognition.
Understanding the cognitive mechanisms underlying symbolic processing can enhance educational practice and our understanding of how our brains learn to use numbers.
