Numerical cognition: contributions from fMRI research on attention and working memory

Using fMRI we examine the relationships between parietal resources implicated in number processing and others involved in spatial attention and working memory. We focus on two lines of research: 1. how spatial attention and working memory provide support for number processing and 2. how neural resources that represent numerical order contribute to the processing of serial order in working memory.
