Dr. Elizabeth M. Brannon’s research program examines the evolution and development of quantitative cognition. She studies how adult humans, infants, young children and nonhuman animals without language represent number. A major current focus is to study how training the primitive number sense might facilitate mathematical abilities in children and adults. Dr. Brannon is the Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn Term Chair in the Natural Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania in the Department of Psychology.
