Abstract:

Mathematical cognition is a cognitive domain crucial not only for academic and professional success but also for quantitative reasoning in every day life. However, many individuals have struggled for mathematical learning from the early stage of development and even continue into adulthood. In this talk, I will introduce key issues of neural correlates of mathematical learning, with a specific focus on insights provided by recent fMRI studies. I will first introduce how mathematical problems are processed in the mature brain. I will then discuss how the mathematical brain develops from childhood into adulthood. Finally, I will talk about the neural bases of atypical developing brain by introducing mathematical learning disabilities. Through the lens of fMRI and cognitive neuroscience methods, the understanding of how individuals learn mathematics that are the hallmark of human cognition shall be uncovered.
