Inactivation and adaptation of number neurons.


Journal Article

Single-neuron recordings may help resolve the issue of abstract number representation in the parietal lobes. Two manipulations in particular - reversible inactivation and adaptation of apparent numerosity - could provide important insights into the causal influence of "numeron" activity. Taken together, these tests can significantly advance our understanding of number processing in the brain.
