Project description

English EN

MRI explains how the human brain learns maths

The EU-funded NeuroMath project will compare learning neural mechanisms in children and adults. It will also investigate the role of language in math acquisition, as well as correlations between understanding dropouts with specific neural markers. The research will study brain activity in children and adults during mathematics acquisition. It will conduct two experiments with the supervision of leading world experts in the field of math cognition and the development of mathematics 'core knowledge' in infancy. The experiments will explain differences of brain engagement during learning of math versus other general semantic concepts.
