In recent years, there has been substantial growth in neuroimaging studies investigating neural correlates of symbolic (e.g. Arabic numerals) and non-symbolic (e.g. dot arrays) number processing. At present it remains contested whether number is represented abstractly, or if number representations in the brain are format-dependent. In order to(More)
INTRODUCTION A number of cognitive biases, most notably a data gathering bias characterised by "jumping to conclusions" (JTC), and the "bias against disconfirmatory evidence" (BADE), have been shown to be associated with delusions and subclinical delusional ideation. Certain personality variables, particularly "openness to experience", are thought to be(More)
There is variation in the extent to which childhood adverse experience affects adult individual differences in maternal behavior. Genetic variation in the animal foraging gene, which encodes a cGMP-dependent protein kinase, contributes to variation in the responses of adult fruit flies, Drosophila melanogaster, to early life adversity and is also known to(More)
Cognitive biases have been found to be associated with delusions in schizophrenia and schizotypy. In the current study, we examined the relationship between subclinical delusional ideation, measured using the Peters Delusions Inventory, and cognitive biases including the bias against disconfirmatory evidence (BADE), 'jumping to conclusions', and need for(More)
It is currently debated whether numbers are processed using a number-specific system or a general magnitude processing system, also used for non-numerical magnitudes such as physical size, duration, or luminance. Activation likelihood estimation (ALE) was used to conduct the first quantitative meta-analysis of 93 empirical neuroimaging papers examining(More)
Recent work has demonstrated that math anxiety is more than just the product of poor math skills. Psychosocial factors may play a key role in understanding what it means to be math anxious, and hence may aid in attempts to sever the link between math anxiety and poor math performance. One such factor may be the extent to which individuals integrate math(More)
