How the brain processes numbers: New procedure improves measurement of human brain activity

Measuring human brain activity down to the cellular level—until now, this has been possible only to a limited extent. With a new approach developed by researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), it will now be much easier. The method relies on microelectrodes and the support of brain tumor patients who participated in studies while undergoing “awake” brain surgery. This enabled the team to identify how our brain processes numbers.
