Core Cognition: Number
This chapter lays out the evidence for two distinct systems of core cognition with numerical content—analog magnitude representations of number and parallel individuation of small sets— contrasting the two. The analog magnitude number system and the system of parallel individuation each take sets of individuals as input and create representations that support quantitative computations. However, their qualitatively different processing signatures provide evidence for radically different formats of representation, with mental symbols with very different content.
