    The Brain′s Semantic Network Distinguishes Algebra from Arithmetic
    Author(s): Lewis Marsh*

    Analyses of brain activity revealed that arithmetic activated more of the bilateral supplementary motor area, left insula and left inferior parietal lobule, while algebra activated more of the angular gyrus. For algebra, significant brain-behavior correlations were found in the semantic network, including the middle temporal gyri, inferior frontal gyri, dorsomedial prefrontal cortices and left angular gyrus. Interindividual single-trial brainbehavior correlation The phonological network, which included the precentral gyrus and supplementary motor area and the visuospatial network, which included the bilateral superior parietal lobules, contained the significant brain-behavior correlations for arithmetic. The visuospatial and semantic networks were found to have significant positive functional connectivity in algebra, while only the visuospatial and phonological net.. Read More»
