Mathematical proficiency is essential for social life (eg, sharing a bill at a restaurant), health (eg, examining whether your blood pressure is too high), and work (eg, calculating your salary) among other things This is why mathematical abilities have been widely studied in the last three decades, from babies to monkey, from congenital and acquired pathology to intervention, from child to elderly This volume aims to provide a comprehensive and critical overview of the mathematical brain across the life span, with an emphasis on learning and on the impact of intervention Two main questions are put to scrutiny: first, what are the numerical and nonnumerical abilities that support the development and the maintenance of mathematical abilities in the lifetime Two views will be presented, one promoting the idea that mathematical abilities are “core,” innate skills, based on the approximate number system (ANS) and suggesting that they are predominantly independent from other cognitive abilities; the other view highlighting the intrinsic and critical role of language, working memory, and cognitive control functions in the development, pathology, as well as normal functioning of mathematical abilities The second question addressed in this volume is to what extent mathematical abilities are trainable, and if so what exactly can be trained, what are the neuronal correlates of learning, whether training can be a valuable option for developmental disorders of maths, and how it relates to education Evidence suggesting the promising possibility to improve some numerical abilities will be presented, albeit leaving open the question of the generalizability of the training effects A clear and comprehensive introduction to numerical abilities in terms of the ANS is offered by Eger’s chapter on the neuronal foundations of human numerical representations, which emphasizes how basic numerical principles are shared across species and ages The more specific forms a “core” number system can take are presented in terms of a computational approach in Butterworth and Karolis’ chapter This is the starting ground against which the discussion of numerical abilities across the life span unfolds De Hevia provides a detailed account of the core number abilities in infants, while Geary and Moore complement this view discussing the importance of domain-general abilities and how they may interact with the core ones at the early stages of development From infancy to childhood, De Smedt discusses individual variability in children’s mathematical abilities, and focuses specifically on how symbols are progressively linked to magnitudes, and on the role of domain-general functions like working memory, executive control, and language The importance of memory skills, especially in learning arithmetic problems, is then discussed by De Visscher and Noeăl at the cognitive level, and by Menon at the neuronal level A different aspect of magnitude processing is discussed in two chapters focusing on adulthood Lyons and colleagues introduce ordinality as an important type of xv xvi Preface numerical function, besides magnitude Doricchi and colleagues add to this the discussion of how number abilities are associated with space Hinault and Lemaire then discuss the role of executive control in arithmetical abilities, with a focus on aging The role of domain-general abilities is subsequently discussed in two chapters focusing on mathematical disabilities and dyscalculia by Szucs and Iuculano, respectively The importance of intervention programs in dyscalculia leads to the two final chapters by Hyde and colleagues, and by Looi and Kadosh, respectively, discussing training programs in terms of the ANS in early development and comparing mathematical training of core and noncore skills Overall, this volume addresses open questions and controversial issues in mathematical cognition across the life span, and it offers an overview of the promising new avenue of learning to both improve and better characterize mathematical cognition itself Marinella Cappelletti Wim Fias CHAPTER Neuronal foundations of human numerical representations E

+33-1-69 08 79 73, e-mail address: evelyn.eger@gmail.com Abstract The human species has developed complex mathematical skills which likely emerge from a combination of multiple foundational abilities One of them seems to be a preverbal capacity to extract and manipulate the numerosity of sets of objects which is shared with other species and in humans is thought to be integrated with symbolic knowledge to result in a more abstract representation of numerical concepts For what concerns the functional neuroanatomy of this capacity, neuropsychology and functional imaging have localized key substrates of numerical processing in parietal and frontal cortex However, traditional fMRI mapping relying on a simple subtraction approach to compare numerical and nonnumerical conditions is limited to tackle with sufficient precision and detail the issue of the underlying code for number, a question which more easily lends itself to investigation by methods with higher spatial resolution, such as neurophysiology In recent years, progress has been made through the introduction of approaches sensitive to within-category discrimination in combination with fMRI (adaptation and multivariate pattern recognition), and the present review summarizes what these have revealed so far about the neural coding of individual numbers in the human brain, the format of these representations and parallels between human and monkey neurophysiology findings Keywords Number representation, fMRI, Parietal cortex, Adaptation, Multivariate decoding INTRODUCTION High-level numerical abilities appear at the heart of many inventions of technologically advanced human societies It is, therefore, not surprising that a substantial amount of neuroscientific effort is dedicated to understanding what a “number” is for the human brain Answering this question is made complex in the first place Progress in Brain Research, Volume 227, ISSN 0079-6123, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/bs.pbr.2016.04.015 © 2016 Elsevier B.V All rights reserved CHAPTER Neuronal foundations of human numerical representations by the multiple meanings in which we use the term number: in its most basic sense, “number” refers to a property characterizing any set of concrete objects, such as its cardinality (numerosity) Humans, nonhuman primates, and many other animals share the ability to rapidly extract and compare the numerosity of sets of objects in an approximate fashion, and the behavior of both human and nonhuman primates in such tasks is characterized by Weber’s law: the accuracy with which the numerosity of two sets of items can be discriminated depends linearly on their ratio, at least over an intermediate range of (not too small and not too large) numerosities (eg, Cantlon and Brannon, 2006; Piazza et al., 2004) It has been suggested that numerosity is not a mere abstract concept but a perceptual property, since it is subject to adaptation after-effects in a similar way as other visual features, for example, orientation, color, motion (Burr and Ross, 2008).a Numerosity, however, is a more complicated property in the sense that it is not bound to any single input modality or presentation mode, and the way it is extracted by sensory systems is far less understood than it is for the other features mentioned Interestingly, perceptual adaptation to numerosity can occur across changes in sensory modality (visual, auditory) and presentation mode (simultaneous vs sequential) (Arrighi et al., 2014), suggesting that the neuronal populations coding for it within each modality may be at least intricately connected, if not feeding into a common representation The second meaning of the term “number” is an abstract mathematical object referred to by symbols and used to count, measure, or rank virtually everything Although this might appear quite removed from the perceptual property of numerosity, a lot of evidence has accumulated to show that across the whole lifespan, in humans there exists a profound link between the capacity to enumerate/compare concrete sets and more abstract numerical/mathematical abilities: behavioral performance for distinguishing two symbolic numerals, although usually more precise overall than the one to distinguish two nonsymbolic numerical stimuli, is less precise and more slow for numerical quantities separated by a smaller ratio, suggesting that the system for comparing the numerical magnitude of symbols is inheriting parts of its metric from the processing of nonsymbolic numerical input (Buckley and Gillman, 1974; Dehaene et al., 1990) Interindividual differences in the precision with which numerosity is discriminated can be correlated with, and even longitudinally predictive of children’s success in symbolic skills such as numerical comparison and calculation (eg, Gilmore et al., 2007; Halberda et al., 2008), even though sensitivity to numerosity is not necessarily the only significant predictor and also other visuospatial abilities (eg, sensitivity to orientation) have been found to correlate with mathematical performance (Tibber et al., 2013) In some children suffering from dyscalculia, the capacity to discriminate visual numerosity can be strongly impaired with respect to age and intelligence matched controls (eg, Mazzocco et al., 2011; Mussolin et al., 2010; Piazza et al., 2010), and interestingly, the a After prolonged exposure (adaptation) to a given numerosity, a set of items of smaller numerosity than the one adapted to is perceived as smaller than its actual value and the opposite for a larger one A core numerical representation in parietal cortex impairment seems to be mainly related to situations where other properties of the stimuli such as, for example, size or area covered provide incongruent magnitude information and have to be discarded to extract a rather abstract representation of cardinality (Bugden and Ansari, 2015; Szucs et al., 2013) Training on approximate additions and subtractions of dot numerosities appeared to have positive transfer effects onto performance in symbolic numerical tasks (Park and Brannon, 2013), while reciprocally, learning symbols for number and/or learning to count has been suggested to enhance the precision of visual numerosity discrimination (Piazza et al., 2013) However, other studies did not find a relation between nonsymbolic and symbolic numerical skills (see, eg, De Smedt et al., 2013, for a review), it has been observed that the relation between numerosity discrimination capacities and mathematical skills is weaker than other relations, for example, the one between symbolic comparison and calculation (Schneider et al., 2016), and some developmental studies did not find a relation between nonsymbolic processing capacities and acquisition of numerical symbols (Sasanguie et al., 2014) Taken together, even though no definitive consensus has been achieved, there is some evidence to suggest that the cognitive systems for processing nonsymbolic numerical input and more abstract (symbolic) numerical concepts may share some common resources This raises the questions of whether and how in the human brain the representations of nonsymbolic and symbolic numerical information may be linked, and what is the nature of the neuronal code of numerical magnitude The present review will give an overview of neuroscientific findings related to the underpinnings of numerical representations in humans, with a particular focus on functional imaging methods Starting by outlining the regions that have emerged as important substrates of numerical processing and placing them into the context of the more general functional neuroanatomy, the review will then focus on what techniques providing enhanced sensitivity to finer-scale brain representations in combination with fMRI have so far revealed about some crucial stages of the representation of individual numerical magnitudes within these key regions A CORE NUMERICAL REPRESENTATION IN PARIETAL CORTEX 2.1 NUMERICAL PROCESSING AND THE COARSE SCALE FUNCTIONAL NEUROANATOMY OF PARIETAL CORTEX Long before the introduction of functional brain imaging methods, neuropsychology had already demonstrated that damage to preferentially left-sided parts of the parietal lobe can result in profound deficits in calculation and other tasks requiring to represent and manipulate numerical information (eg, Cipolotti et al., 1991; Dehaene et al., 1998) Since then, the implication of parts of the parietal (and frontal) lobes in different numerical tasks has been studied extensively with fMRI Synthesizing findings from neuropsychology and early fMRI studies, it has been hypothesized that CHAPTER Neuronal foundations of human numerical representations central parts of the human intraparietal sulcus (IPS) constitute a key node for the abstract representation of numerical magnitude (Dehaene et al., 2003) Intraparietal cortex is recruited during a wide range of symbolic and nonsymbolic numerical tasks and is one of the most consistently activated regions in a recent metaanalysis of fMRI studies of numerical processing, both for nonarithmetic and arithmetic tasks (Arsalidou and Taylor, 2011), see Fig 1A As part of high-level association cortex, the IPS is endowed with a rather complex functionality beyond the domain of numerical cognition This includes, for example, spatial and action-related aspects of perception (Culham and Valyear, 2006), multisensory, and sensory-motor integration Sensory-motor integration is achieved within a series of spatial field maps which are characterized by coding for space by a progression of reference frames (see, eg, Hubbard et al., 2005; Sereno and Huang, 2014) Superior parts of the intraparietal cortex further play a crucial role B A AS PS CS IPS 30 20 Addition Subtraction Multiplication 10 % Number responsive neurons FIG Cortical regions important for numerical

selective neurons have been found during delayed match-to-sample tasks with visual numerosities While the similar regions found across the two species suggests a close homology, it is important to bear in mind that rather different kinds of comparisons provided the basis for the different figures: discrimination within dimension (between individual numerosities) in the case of the neurophysiological findings, and in most cases subtractions between numerical and nonnumerical control conditions in the fMRI findings, where controls differed not only in the type of stimulus but also different instrumental processes recruited Panel (A) Adapted from Arsalidou, M., Taylor, M.J., 2011 Is + ¼ 4? metaanalyses of brain areas needed for numbers and calculations NeuroImage 54,
