Enhanced Math Skills Later in Life Predicted by Early Spatial Reasoning

Spatial reasoning measured in infancy predicts how children do at math at four years of age, finds a new study published inPsychological Science.

“We’ve provided the earliest documented evidence for a relationship between spatial reasoning and math ability,” says Emory University psychologist Stella Lourenco, whose lab conducted the research. “We’ve shown that spatial reasoning beginning early in life, as young as six months of age, predicts both the continuity of this ability and mathematical development.”

Emory graduate student Jillian Lauer is co-author of the study.
