Different neural activations for an approaching friend versus stranger: Linking personal space to numerical cognition in developmental dyscalculia

Abstract:

Typically, humans place themselves at a preferred distance from others. This distance is known to characterize human spatial behavior. Here, we focused on neurocognitive conditions that may affect interpersonal distances. The current study investigated whether neurocognitive deficiencies in numerical and spatial knowledge may affect social perception and modulate personal space.
