My research focuses on how the brain acquires and masters complex cognitive skills, like mathematics. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, I study how brain regions interact during demanding cognitive tasks, and I combine these techniques with behavioral training programs to explore how learning shapes brain activity. I am particularly interested in understanding how learning may be altered in children with learning disabilities and autism spectrum disorders.
