Mathematical cognition: behavioral data
We use numbers every day: from simple counting, ranking, and estimating quantities to performing mathematical operations. Basic mathematical operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division can be simple (3 x 2), more difficult (79 x 2) or complex (374 x 24). We developed a new computerized paradigm that evaluates mathematical problem solving abilities in a parametric fashion and examine accuracy, reaction time and subjective ratings of difficulty in a group of young adults. This seminar focused on behavioural indices associated with performing basic mathematical operations of variable complexity.
Speakers: Student members of the NUG project “Brain responses to mathematical operations of increasing complexity”; Ksenia Konopkina and Irina Matiulko, Master's Students.
