Kindergarteners needed for developmental study on numbers learning

Feb. 16, 2018, 4:58 PM

Vanderbilt researchers are looking for children who are in kindergarten this year to take part in a study about how children learn to process numbers and what parts of the brain change as they do so.

Families will come to Vanderbilt for two visits per year for three years. The first visit will be two-three hours and involves school-like assessments and playing games while in a mock scanner. The second visit will be about two hours, and children will play some games on a computer involving numbers and objects while lying still in an MRI scanner.

Visits can be scheduled during the day, on evenings, and on weekends. Participants will be compensated for their time.
