It is widely accepted that the human brain is remarkably adaptive not only in child development, but also during adulthood. Aim of this work is to offer an overview and a systematic analysis of neuroimaging studies on the acquisition of arithmetic expertise. In normally developing children and adults, the gain of arithmetic competence is reflected by a shift of activation from frontal brain areas to parietal areas relevant for arithmetic processing. A shift of activation is also observed within… CONTINUE READING
