Seminar on insula

The seminar on functional role on insula in human brain took place on July 2 at Psychology department.

We use numbers everyday.  Formal mathematical training is typically introduced in the classroom, and in most schools mathematics is a core subject. Early research shows that the parietal cortex is critical for solving problems with numbers.  However, research with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) shows that mathematical problem solving relies on a group of areas distributed across the brain.

Using fMRI we will investigate how young healthy adults use mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) of different complexity.  By better understanding how the normal brain processes mathematical operations we can improve the educational programs that would benefit researchers, clinicians and educators.
