Research Interests

Our lab explores the developmental origins of intelligent behavior. We conduct brain imaging studies with children from all over the world.

Available PhD projects

(1) How do we learn to understand information? (e.g. language, letters, numbers)
(2) How do we build mental models of our experience? (e.g. a mental lexicon, a quantification system)
(3) How do we learn to use these models for intelligent actions? (e.g. problem solving)
