Job description

Our lab investigates how the brain processes numbers and why some people are not good at it. This specific study aims to discover the exact cognitive representation of verbal numbers such as “three thousand and six”. Using a novel behavioral paradigm and advanced analysis methods, we look for highly-specific priming effects that inform about how such numbers are represented in the brain. Our preliminary results are extremely promising; will you be the one to help us move forward?
