Abstract

There is general agreement that patients affected by deficits in number processing are severely handicapped in everyday life. Indeed, number processing is an essential part of our culture. Numbers are used for counting, measuring, comparing, for putting things in a certain order, for distinguishing objects, or for doing simple and complex calculations. Nonetheless, acquired deficits in arithmetic processing are frequently ignored after brain lesions and targeted rehabilitation approaches are still rare (Girelli & Seron, 2001).
