Bridging Cognitive Neuroscience and Education: Insights from Development of Reading, Math, and Selective Attention

This talk will examine how approaching educational domains such as early reading and symbolic arithmetic development from the vantage point of brining together neural systems associated with more elementary forms of cognition, such as visual symbol recognition, access to phonological forms, and comparisons of approximate magnitudes may help inform issues of learning disability, individual differences, and the potential role of pedagogy in skill acquisition.
