Embodied numerosity: Implicit hand-based representations influence symbolic number processing across cultures
In recent years, a strong functional relationship between finger counting and number processing has been suggested. Developmental studies have shown specific effects of the structure of theExpand

On the language specificity of basic number processing: transcoding in a language with inversion and its relation to working memory capacity.
Transcoding Arabic numbers from and into verbal number words is one of the most basic number processing tasks commonly used to index the verbal representation of numbers. The inversion property,Expand

Basic number processing deficits in developmental dyscalculia: Evidence from eye tracking
Abstract Recent research suggests that developmental dyscalculia is associated with a subitizing deficit (i.e., the inability to quickly enumerate small sets of up to 3 objects). However, the natureExpand

Processing Pathways in Mental Arithmetic—Evidence from Probabilistic Fiber Tracking
Numerical cognition is a case of multi-modular and distributed cerebral processing. So far neither the anatomo-functional connections between the cortex areas involved nor their integration intoExpand

The link between mental rotation ability and basic numerical representations
Mental rotation and number representation have both been studied widely, but although mental rotation has been linked to higher-level mathematical skills, to date it has not been shown whether mentalExpand

Learning and development of embodied numerosity
Recent empirical evidence indicates that seemingly abstract numerical cognitions are rooted in sensory and bodily experiences. In particular in finger counting finger-based representations reflect aExpand

Eye fixation behaviour in the number bisection task: evidence for temporal specificity.
Together with magnitude representations, knowledge about multiplicativity and parity contributes to numerical problem solving. In the present study, we used eye tracking to document how and whenExpand

The influence of math anxiety on symbolic and non-symbolic magnitude processing
Deficits in basic numerical abilities have been investigated repeatedly as potential risk factors of math anxiety. Previous research suggested that also a deficient approximate number system (ANS),Expand

Considering structural connectivity in the triple code model of numerical cognition: differential connectivity for magnitude processing and arithmetic facts
The current study provides a generalizable account of the anatomo-functional associations as well as the connectivity of representational codes underlying numerical processing as suggested by theExpand

Bilateral Bi-Cephalic Tdcs with Two Active Electrodes of the Same Polarity Modulates Bilateral Cognitive Processes Differentially
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is an innovative method to explore the causal structure-function relationship of brain areas. We investigated the specificity of bilateral bi-cephalicExpand
