Connecting Neural Coding to Number Cognition: A Computational Account
Prather, Richard W.
Developmental Science, v15 n4 p589-600 Jul 2012
The current study presents a series of computational simulations that demonstrate how the neural coding of numerical magnitude may influence number cognition and development. This includes behavioral phenomena cataloged in cognitive literature such as the development of numerical estimation and operational momentum. Though neural research has begun to describe neural coding of number, it is unclear how specific characteristics of the neural coding may relate to the expansive list of behavioral phenomena in the development of number cognition. The following study considers several possibilities.
