Reliability of neurocognitive mechanisms of numerical magnitude processing: A dense sampling study (DS)

Purpose

We are interested in how consistent the brain is in processing numbers, and its relationship to math ability. We hope this research will help us better understand how we do math, and help us to develop better ways of identifying students who may have math learning difficulties.
