Development of Mathematical Cognition: Neural Substrates and Genetic Influencesreviews advances in extant imaging modalities and the application of brain stimulation techniques for improving mathematical learning. It goes on to explore the role genetics and environmental influences have in the development of math abilities and disabilities.

Focusing on the neural substrates and genetic factors associated with both the typical and atypical development of mathematical thinking and learning, this second volume in theMathematical Cognition and Learningseries integrates the latest in innovative measures and methodological advances from the top researchers in the field.

  • Provides details about new progress made in the study of neural correlates of numerical and arithmetic cognition
  • Addresses recent work in quantitative and molecular genetics
  • Works to improve instruction in numerical, arithmetical, and algebraic thinking and learning
  • Informs policy to help increase the level of mathematical proficiency among the general public
