Integrating Reflex Responses

When our automatic reflexes are working well, we rarely even notice. These extremely fast reactions happen much quicker than would be possible if we had to think through the best option for that circumstance, making reflexes incredibly useful...

Dyscalculia

Recent research in cognitive and developmental neuroscience is providing a new approach to the understanding of dyscalculia that emphasizes a core deficit in understanding sets and their numerosities, which is fundamental to all aspects of...
