Spreckelsen, Megan; Dove, Emma; Coolen, Ilse; Mills, Annelot; Dowker, Ann; Sylva, Kathy; Ansari, Daniel; Merkley, Rebecca; Murphy, Victoria; Scerif, Gaia – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Developmental cognitive neuroscience highlights the importance of interactions between children and their environment. As young children spend increasing time in childcare, it is key to investigate the impact of "maths-talk" and maths provisions in preschools. Qualitative insights from early educators indicate a greater bias toward…

Goffin, Celia; Ansari, Daniel – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
What is the nature of the relationship between different lower-level numerical skills and their role in developing arithmetic skills? We consider the hypothesis of a reciprocal relationship between the development of symbolic (e.g., Arabic numerals) and nonsymbolic (e.g., arrays of objects) numerical magnitude processing. Evidence for…

Lyons, Ian M.; Ansari, Daniel – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2015
Recent work has demonstrated that how we process the relative order--ordinality--of numbers may be key to understanding how we represent numbers symbolically, and has proven to be a robust predictor of more sophisticated math skills in both children and adults. However, it remains unclear whether numerical ordinality is primarily a by-product of…

Coch, Donna; Michlovitz, Stephen A.; Ansari, Daniel; Baird, Abigail – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2009
This article describes the efforts of a small group of educators and researchers to build a model for making connections across mind, brain, and education. With a common goal of sharing, strengthening, and building useable knowledge about child and adolescent learning and development, we focused on questions of mutual interest to educators and…
