Compression of the perceptual metric during saccadic eye movements Section IV: Introduction Ontogeny and phylogeny Origins of spatial, temporal and numerical cognition: Insights from animal model systems The approximate number system and the computations it supports as evidenced from a non-human primate model Origins of generalized magnitude representation Section V: Introduction to Development, education and representational change Foundational numerical capacities and the origins of dyscalculia Neurocognitive start-up tools for symbolic number representations Sources of Abstract Concepts: Natural Number and Natural Geometry Geometry as a universal mental construction How languages construct time Improving low-income children's number sense
1. Mental magnitudes and their transformations -- 2. Neural codes for space, time and number -- 3. Shared mechanisms for space, time and number -- 4. Origins of proto-mathematical intuitions -- 5. Representational change and education
The study of mathematical cognition and the ways in which the ideas of space, time and number are encoded in brain circuitry has become a fundamental issue for neuroscience. How such encoding differs across cultures and educational level is of further interest in education and neuropsychology. This rapidly expanding field of research is overdue for an interdisciplinary volume such as this, which deals with the neurological and psychological foundations of human numeric capacity. A uniquely integrative work, this volume provides a much needed compilation of primary source material to researchers from basic neuroscience, psychology, developmental science, neuroimaging, neuropsychology and theoretical biology. * The first comprehensive and authoritative volume dealing with neurological and psychological foundations of mathematical cognition * Uniquely integrative volume at the frontier of a rapidly expanding interdisciplinary field * Features outstanding and truly international scholarship, with chapters written by leading experts in a variety of fields
