CARDOSO, Thiago da Silva Gusmão  and  MUSZKAT, Mauro. Neuroscientific aspects of mathematics learning: exploring the innate cognitive structures of the brain. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.106, pp. 73-81. ISSN 0103-8486.

Many studies have been conducted about how the brain deals with mathematical information. These researches have agreed with the assertion that we have a brain module for processing of numbers and quantities, in the literature referred to as number sense. The expansion of this module, however, depends to how much mathematical knowledge acquired and the culture we live through learning. Thus, this article aims to discuss aspects related to mathematical learning about the perspective of neuroscience, highlighting research findings related to this issue, as the models postulated to explain the relationship between the brain and the numerical processing, namely Approximate Number System (SNA) and the Triple Code Model (TCM).

Keywords : Mathematics; Learning; Neurosciences; Number Sense; Cognition.
