Caption: Mathematical brain activity. Co-registered EEG (electroencephalogram) - MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan of brain activity during mathematical multiplications. EEGs use electrodes attached to the scalp to measure the brain's electrical potential. The EEG results have been interpreted and areas they showed to be involved in solving these problems have been coloured orange on the MRI scans. The scans here get higher up in the brain as the slice number increases. Certain parts of the brain are known to control specific functions. By studying the activities of different areas of the brain, a greater understanding of learning, problem-solving and other cognitive functions may be gained.
