How the Brain Processes Numbers and Calculations
On March 21 you are kindly invited to the open talk «How the Brain Processes Numbers and Calculations» within the HSE project«University Open to the City: HSE Talks».
We use numbers every day; we see them on street signs, price tags and bank statements. Early research shows that the parietal cortex is critical for solving problems with numbers. However, research with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) shows that mathematical problem solving relies not only on parietal cortices but a group of distributed brain areas. This lecture will discuss how the healthy brain responds when solving problems with numbers.
Lecturer – Marie Arsalidou, PhD, Associate Professor from the Faculty of Social Sciences at HSE.
