TeslaBoy (1593823) writes "A new study demonstrates that neurons processing numbers of objects are arranged on the human brain as a topographic map, with low numbers at one end and higher numbers at the other. This mirrors the organization of the sensory areas of the brain, where maps of the visual field, auditory frequency, or the skin surface are found. However, the number map does not come from the structure of an external organ but has emerged within the brain.
