Overview of Interests

Gavin Price's research focuses on the cognitive and neurological mechanisms supporting basic numerical and mathematical competence in typically and atypically developing individuals. Dr. Price approaches this in three ways. First, characterizing numerical and mathematical neurocognitive systems in typically developing adults. Second, characterizing those systems in typically developing children, and third, characterizing those systems in atypically developing children. These three approaches are synergistic and comprise an integrated research program that ultimately seek stop provide an empirical evidence base for the development of effective educational interventions for children with mathematical learning disabilities (often referred to as dyscalculia).
