This series, Ask A Developmental Psychologist, will feature Q&A sessions with the directors of the Early Development Research Group (EDRG). Have you ever wondered why babies behave in certain ways or how children develop essential skills? Perhaps, you’ve just been curious about what certain psychological concepts mean? This is your chance to ask some of the world’s leading experts in the field!

What innate abilities do children have that may influence their ability to learn complex subjects like math?
