Mathematical thinking area of brain identified; technique could lead to mind-reading devices, scientists say
October 18, 2013
Researchers have found the first solid evidence that a specific brain region is activated in everyday conversation when people use numbers (or even imprecise quantitative terms, such as “more than”), according to a study by Stanford University School of Medicine scientists.
That brain region was previously found to be activated when people are asked to perform mathematical calculations, but only in a limited, unnatural experimental setting.
