The topic was " Space, Time and Numbers: A Developmental Perspective", and Dr Gallagher-Mitchell's talk discussed shared processing of spatial and numerical concepts and how this can be exploited for learning gain in mathematics education.
Dr Gallagher-Mitchell was also invited to attend a lab meeting and take a tour of the facilities at Birkbeck University, to discuss collaborative research between CEN and Liverpool Hope's new Childlab.
CEN research seminars are open to the public and are part of the centre’s output as a University-led research centre.
