Stacee Santos

Stacee Santos

Stacee is interested in how the limited access to sound and language influences cognitive development. Her research investigates different numerical concepts with deaf and hard of hearing children. These studies explore how children with hearing loss discriminate between different amounts, recognize shapes, understand quantities, space, and proportion. Stacee received her Ph.D. from Boston College in 2008 where her research focused on the cognitive benefits of physical activity and complex motor learning. Back to list

Karina Hamamouche

Karina Hamamouche

Karina graduated from Butler University with a BA in Psychology and French in 2014. She is primarily interested in children's and adults' perceptions of time and number. In particular, Karina uses emotion as a tool to explore the similarities and differences in people's ability to process time and number. Her work explores the effect of emotion on temporal and numerical estimation, discrimination, and counting. In addition, Karina is interested in exploring how temporal and numerical estimation relate to later math achievement. Back to list
