In the field of numerical cognition, ordinality, or the sequence of numerals, has received much less attention than cardinality, or the number of items in a set. Therefore it is unclear whether the numerical effects generated from ordinality and cardinality tasks are associated, and whether they relate to math achievement and more domain-general variables in similar ways. To address these questions, sixty adults completed ordinality, cardinality, visual-spatial working memory, inhibitory… CONTINUE READING
