Data and Information Granule Rules Retrieval: Differences of Activation in Parietal Cortex
Efficient encoding of Roman rules is based on the neural bases of mathematical cognitive abilities. The present imaging studies have shown that information granule representing a form of Roman rules is associated with arithmetical domain-sensitive parietal cortex, indicating a switch from the data to the information granule retrieval of memory rules. So far, however, little is known about the developing neural substrate for the establishment of rules from data to information granule. The aim of the present fMRI study is to investigate whether and how mathematical intelligence might be enhanced from data to information granule of Roman arithmetic rules in the parietal cortex. Concerning the same rules, the paired t-test analysis indicated that different activation in the bilateral parietal lobule associated with different retrieval levels. In conclusion, the present study yielded some evidence that a successful model for knowledge-building of rules is accompanied by modifications of brain activation patterns.
