Cerebral activity during number comparison was studied with functional magnetic resonance imaging using an event-related design. We identified an extended network of task-related areas that showed a phasic activation following each trial, including anterior cingulate, bilateral sensorimotor areas, inferior occipito-temporal cortices, posterior parietal cortices, inferior and dorsolateral prefrontal cortices, and thalami. We then tested which of these areas were affected by number notation… CONTINUE READING
