"number sense"

Our research group investigates the neuro-functional and cognitive foundations of numerical cognition. The activities are centered on the assumption that our mental arithmetic capabilities are based on the innate number sense, i.e. the ability to perceive and differentiate numerosities.

We use classical reaction time analysis and functional imaging techniques (magnetic resonance imaging) as research tools to approach this issue.
