Dr. Morsanyi has a background in the development of reasoning skills in typical development and in special populations (in autism, and in developmental dyscalculia). She is particularly interested in reasoning heuristics, probabilistic reasoning, analogical reasoning, and how reasoning skills can be improved through training. She is also interested in how affective states (for example, anxiety) influence reasoning abilities and people's decisions.
