In adult human brains, the horizontal segment of the intraparietal sulcus plays a large role in representing numeric magnitude. In children and non-human primates, however, frontal cortex may play a larger role. We hypothesized that there is a link between observed developmental changes in locus of representation (frontal to parietal) and type of(More)
Previous work has identified a distributed, network of neural systems involved in appraising the value of rewards, such as when winning $100. We hypothesized that involvement of intraparietal sulcus (IPS) in this network is specialized for processing numeric rather than monetary value. To test our hypothesis, we manipulated numeric magnitude and units to(More)
Previous work has identified a distributed network of neural systems involved in appraising the value of rewards, such as when winning $100 versus $1. These studies, however, confounded monetary value and the number used to represent it, which leads to the possibility that some elements in the network may be specialized for processing numeric rather than(More)
