I am interested in the relation between the brain and behavior during development. The focus of my work is on the development of the executive aspects of attention and control, such as inhibitory control, monitoring and error-detection, and the development of number representation and mathematical skills. I employ behavioral tasks used in cognitive experimental psychology, and adapt them for studying young children. I measure behavioral responses (reaction time, accuracy, gaze direction) as well as electrophysiological measurements (Event-Related Potentials).
Some of my current projects:
* The development of error detection, from infancy to adulthood
* The development of brain representation of numerosities, from infancy to adulthood
* The development of self-regulation and temperament in children at familial risk for ADHD
