Specializes in Pediatrics

See below: According to a study from 2004 in a neurobiology journal, math skills including making mental calculations appear to associated with multiple area of the human brain including both right and left sides of the prefrontal and intraparietal cortex. Thus, any injuries to these areas make cause issues with mental calculations. More recent studies may be out there but that is not my area of expertise.
