The number sense : how the mind creates mathematics by Stanislas Dehaene( Book )

73 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dehaene, a mathematician turned cognitive neuropsychologist, begins with the eye-opening discovery that animals, including rats, pigeons, raccoons, and chimpanzees, can perform simple mathematical calculations. He goes on to describe ingenious experiments that show that human infants also have a rudimentary number sense. Dehaene shows that the animal and infant abilities for dealing with small numbers and with approximate calculations persist in human adults and have a strong influence on the way we represent numbers and perform more complex calculations later in life. According to Dehaene, it was the invention of symbolic systems for writing and talking about numerals that started us on the climb to higher mathematics. He traces the cultural history of numbers and shows how this cultural evolution reflects the constraints that our brain architecture places on learning and memory. Dehaene also explores the unique abilities of idiot savants and mathematical geniuses, asking whether simple cognitive explanations can be found for their exceptional talents. In a final section, the cerebral substrates of arithmetic are described. We meet people whose brain lesions made them lose highly specific aspects of their numerical abilities - one man, in fact, who thinks that two and two is three! Such lesion data converge nicely with the results of modern imaging techniques (PET scans, MRI, and EEG) to help pinpoint the brain circuits that encode numbers. From sex differences in arithmetic to the pros and cons of electronic calculators, the adequacy of the brain-computer metaphor, or the interactions between our representations of space and of number, Dehaene reaches many provocative conclusions that will intrigue anyone interested in mathematics or the mind
Reading in the brain : the science and evolution of a human invention by Stanislas Dehaene( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this riveting investigation, Stanislas Dehaene provides an accessible account of the brain circuitry of reading and explores what he calls the "reading paradox": Our cortex is the product of millions of years of evolution in a world without writing, so how did it adapt to recognize words?
Consciousness and the brain : deciphering how the brain codes our thoughts by Stanislas Dehaene( Book )

19 editions published in 2014 in English and Italian and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A breathtaking look at the new science that can track consciousness deep in the brain How does our brain generate a conscious thought? And why does so much of our knowledge remain unconscious? Thanks to clever psychological and brain-imaging experiments, scientists are closer to cracking this mystery than ever before. In this lively book, Stanislas Dehaene describes the pioneering work his lab and the labs of other cognitive neuroscientists worldwide have accomplished in defining, testing, and explaining the brain events behind a conscious state. We can now pin down the neurons that fire when a person reports becoming aware of a piece of information and understand the crucial role unconscious computations play in how we make decisions. The emerging theory enables a test of consciousness in animals, babies, and those with severe brain injuries. A joyous exploration of the mind and its thrilling complexities, Consciousness and the Brain will excite anyone interested in cutting-edge science and technology and the vast philosophical, personal, and ethical implications of finally quantifying consciousness"--

A gift for maths( Visual )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Endowed with an elementary representation mechanism, the human brain is naturally predisposed toward mathematics. This program seeks to understand the biological basis of humankind's "gift for math"--And why, beyond that baseline computational ability, some people are capable of scaling the highest peaks of mathematical comprehension. Experiments with animals, studies of very young children, cases involving patients with brain injuries, and analysis of brain imaging data are included

Reading in the brain : the new science of how we read by Stanislas Dehaene( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The act of reading is so easily taken for granted that we forget what an astounding feat it is. How can a few black marks on white paper evoke an entire universe of meanings? It's even more amazing when we consider that we read using a primate brain that evolved to serve an entirely different purpose. In this riveting investigation, Stanislas Dehaene explores every aspect of this human invention, from its origins to its neural underpinnings. A world authority on the subject, Dehaene reveals the hidden logic of spelling, describes pioneering research on how we process languages, and takes us into a new appreciation of the brain and its wondrous capacity to adapt."--Page 4 of cover
Numerical cognition by Stanislas Dehaene( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What computations do our brains perform when we complete a simple addition task such as adding two and three to make five? How do numerical abilities develop through infancy? Is language a prerequisite for numeracy, or can animals as well as human beings calculate with numbers? Ever since Plato, the mental representation of number and the psychological and neurobiological bases of mathematical abilities in general have been the focus of philosophical and scientific speculation. Recently, new methods in cognitive and developmental psychology, neuropsychology, and animal behavior research have permitted the experimental exploration of old questions. Numerical Cognition constitutes the first comprehensive and up-to-date overview of an emerging field, and points out future directions for researchers to take. An introductory chapter offers an overview of the problem and then focuses on the critical relationship between number and language and on evidence for nonlinguistic representations of number. Subsequent chapters trace the fascinating parallels between human and animal representations of number, probe the meanings of the disintegration of numerical abilities following brain damage, and analyze unusual forms of visuo-spatial number representations first discovered by Sir John Galton more than a century ago. The editor and authors of Numerical Cognition have performed a signal service for students and researchers in cognitive science, neuropsychology, and mathematics, indeed, for everyone interested in the nature of mathematics and its relation to mind and brain
Space, time and number in the brain : searching for the foundations of mathematical thought : an attention and performance series volume by Stanislas Dehaene( Book )

30 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study of mathematical cognition and the ways in which the ideas of space, time and number are encoded in brain circuitry has become a fundamental issue for neuroscience. How such encoding differs across cultures and educational level is of further interest in education and neuropsychology. This rapidly expanding field of research is overdue for an interdisciplinary volume such as this, which deals with the neurological and psychological foundations of human numeric capacity. A uniquely integrative work, this volume provides a much needed compilation of primary source material to researchers from basic neuroscience, psychology, developmental science, neuroimaging, neuropsychology and theoretical biology."--Source other than Library of Congress

Der Zahlensinn oder Warum wir rechnen können by Stanislas Dehaene( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in German and English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieses Buch ist für alle, die nicht nur rechnen können, sondern auch wissen wollen, warum sie es können. Es wird ein Überblick über die Wechselbeziehungen zwischen Mathematik und Gehirn gegeben und beschreiben, wo und wie Mathematik eigentlich stattfindet: Das Vermögen zur Mathematik beruht auf der Erfindung und der im Laufe der Kulturgeschichte langwierigen Entwicklung von komplexen symbolischen Systemen, die komplizierte mathematische Zusammenhänge in Wort und Schrift ausdrücken. Das menschliche Gehirn besitzt einerseits die Fähigkeit, diese Zusammenhänge aufzunehmen und mit ihnen zu arbeiten, und andererseits hat sich die Mathematik auch so entwickelt, wie es die Strukturen des Gehirns erfordern. Der Autor zeigt, welche Schaltkreise im Gehirn für diese Wechselbeziehung zwischen menschlicher Gehirnstruktur und mathematischer Entwicklung verantwortlich sind. Inhalt: - Mathematisch begabte Tiere - Babys, die zählen - Der Zahlenstrahl der Erwachsenen - Die Sprache der Zahlen - Kleine Köpfe für grosse Rechnungen - Mathematikgenies und Rechenkünstler - Der Verlust des Zahlensinns - Das rechnende Hirn - Was ist eine Zahl?
Vers une science de la vie mentale : [leçon inaugurale prononcée le jeudi 27 avril 2006] by Stanislas Dehaene( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in French and Undetermined and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La cognition humaine obéit à de strictes lois, qui n'épargnent pas même les aspects les plus subjectifs de notre perception consciente. Je crois profondément à un renouveau du programme psychophysique de Fechner, Wundt, Ribot ou Piéron, qui, devenu "neuro-physique", viendrait s'ancrer au niveau neuronal. Nous avons l'immense chance de vivre un temps où les avancées conjointes de la psychologie et de la neuro-imagerie cognitives laissent entrevoir de rendre enfin visible, comme à crâne ouvert, l'invisible de la pensée
