Project Title: Optimizing pre-schoolers’ working memory and numerical processing capabilities
Project Introduction: The project aims to understand (a) how early mathematical skills develop and (b) how variation in childhood parenting practices influences children’s development in working memory and numeracy. Using both behavioural and neuroimaging methods, we will collect cross-sectional and longitudinal data from a large sample of preschool children. The information generated will be used to help identify and develop intervention for children with difficulties in early numeracy.
