We seek to provide novel insights into the cognitive and neural underpinnings of individual ability differences and school-relevant learning.

Within the framework of the research field “educational neuroscience”, we pursue a multi-methodological approach including both behavioral and cognitive neuroscience methods (electroencephalography, magnetic resonance imaging, non-invasive brain stimulation).

In light of the paramount importance of numerical and mathematical skills, our primary research interest lies in the development and facilitation of these competencies. We investigate the broad ability range from poor mathematical skills (dyscalculia) to mathematical excellence and deal with basic numerical skills as well as with more complex mathematical problem solving.

In addition, we focus on the role of general cognitive abilities (intelligence, creativity) for successful learning and on benefits and costs of bilingual learning (content and language integrated instruction).
