Influences of visuospatial mental processes and cortical excitability on numerical cognition and learning

Alternative title:
Mental rotation, synaesthesia, and number cognition
Abstract:

Numerical cognition has been shown to share many aspects of spatial cognition, both behavioural and neurological. However, it is unclear whether a particular type of spatial cognition, visuospatial mental imagery (VSMI), may play a role in symbolic numerical representation. In this thesis, I first show that mental rotation, a form of VSMI, is related to two measures of basic numerical representation. I then show that number-space synaesthesia (NSS), a rare type of VSMI involving visualised ...
