This is what happens with challenges like the one we bring to you today, which allows you to test your intelligence and your intuition at home.
A mathematician’s brain: a specific brain?
You may know it, but the ability to understand mathematics is studied by science. Researchers have indeed wondered if math teachers and arithmetic geniuses could be born with a biological advantage?
To explore this possibility, a study sought to determine whether a person’s math skills were associated with concentrations of two key neurotransmitters involved in learning. Cognitive neuroscientists from the University of Oxford in the UK examined levels of GABA and glutamate in the brain to see if these neurotransmitters could predict future math abilities. GABA and glutamate are two natural amino acids that play complementary roles: the first inhibits or reduces the activity of neurons or nerve cells in the brain, while the second makes them more active. Their levels fluctuate throughout life.
This combination made the experiment really interesting because the scientists were able to see how GABA and glutamate are involved in a complex cognitive skill that takes years to mature like math skill. Researchers not only found a link, but also found that levels of these neurotransmitters change as children grow into adults. This research has been published in the journal PLOS Biology.
