    "Diagramming" in mathematics: Cognitive tools as triggers for enhancing reasoning

    The aim of my talk is to discuss the role of cognitive tools such as notation and diagrams in mathematics. According to the general framework I propose, the use of these tools depends on the ability of diagramming, which allows us to recruit perception and action in view of more specifically inferential aims. I will present some examples taken from mathematics and discuss some possible directions for future research.

    Into Word Learning; Mechanisms, Modulators, Measurement

    Towards the end of their second year of life, young children acquire new words at an impressive pace. Yet not all children learn words with the same efficiency, and variability in vocabulary sizes is very large. I will describe a few studies attempting to shed light on learning mechanisms employed by young children when learning new words, into factors modulating vocabulary size or composition, and will introduce a new method to evaluate early word knowledge.
