Roberta Barrocas

Member of JRC Neuro-cognitive Plasticity

Roberta Barrocas has been a PhD student and research assistant in the project „Digits grasp digits – Development and evaluation of a digital app for self-regulated training of finger-based numerical strategies“ (principal investigator: Prof. Dr. Korbinian Moeller and Prof. Dr. Caterina Gawrilow) at the IWM since August 2017. Her main research interests concern influences of finger-motor skills on the development of numerical competences in children.

In 2014, Roberta Barrocas graduated from the Federal University of São Paulo (Brazil) with a Master’s degree in Education and Health in Childhood and Adolescence, after studying Psychology at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (Brazil, 2011). Additionally, she has experience in the diagnosis and remediation of developmental and learning disorders as she worked as a clinical neuropsychologist for two years in Brazil.
