  • The question of the neural bases of computation processing is a highly debated topic and from a functional point of view, solving computation-based problems is a complex cognitive skill requiring numbers to be held and manipulated on a short-term representational medium while the dedicated resolution algorithm is applied. This study used a 3T fMRI system with BOLD contrast sequences to explore the brain activation differences between the abacus-based experts and the normal subjects through… CONTINUE READING
