**Research**

Our center is dedicated to investigating the influence of learning experience on the cognitive processes of mathematics and its neural correlates, brain mechanism of dyscalculia (mathematical disability), diagnosis and intervention, specificity of mathematical brain, and other math-related questions. By revealing patterns of brain activity during effective mathematics learning, we also try to propose and test the plans and systems for mathematical education and instruction. The main research topics of our research are as follows: 1. Cognitive and neural correlates of mathematical processingWe would like to investigate how to account for the role of approximate number system in mathematical performance. The visual form perception hypothesis has been proposed for cognitive mechanism; What are the fundamental cognitive processing to support mathematical abilities? The brain systems to support mathematical performance can be identified. 2. Development and acquisition of mathematical abilities The approaches to promote the development of mathematical abilities would be designed and tested. The experience (from culture and education) to shape Chinese mathematical brain would be systematically investigated. The comparison of cognition and brain systems between children and adults can shed light on how children develop mathematical abilities. 3. Dyscalculia researchWe focus on the types and characteristics of acquired and developmental mathematical disabilities (including dyscalculia). The diagnostic tools and effective interventions for the developmental dyscalculia would be designed and tested.
