  • Purpose: Children with velocardiofacial syndrome (VCFS) often have deficits in mathematical reasoning. Previous research has suggested that structural abnormalities in the parietal lobe region might underlie these deficits. The present study utilized functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to explore the relationship between brain function and mathematical performance in VCFS.Methods: Eight children with VCFS and eight comparison subjects underwent fMRI scanning and completed an arithmetic… CONTINUE READING
