Research Themes: 

The Communicating Mind and Body

Darko Odic is a developmental psychologist interested in the origins of language and thought. His research is at the intersection of cognitive development, psychophysics, and psycholinguistics. He is especially interested in how children intuitively represent and reason about number, time, and space, and how language acquisition enriches basic intuitions about quantity and helps children learn uniquely human abilities including mathematics and science. The ultimate goal of Darko’s research is to understand why learning is sometimes easy, and sometimes hard and protracted.
