The Approximate Number System (ANS) allows humans and non-human animals to estimate large quantities without counting. It is most commonly studied in visual contexts (i.e., with displays containing different numbers of dots), although the ANS may operate on all approximate quantities regardless of modality (e.g., estimating the number of a series o...

... Weber fraction was added to the model, Age, Visual Working Memory capacity and Conflict ANT score became marginally significant predictors of variance in Mathematics score (likely due to the shared variance between these predictors and ANS performance found in the previous section). Hearing group, Inhibitory Control and Non-verbal IQ remained significant predictors (see Figure 6 for the individual relationship between each predictor and Mathematics score). As in the previous model, there was no interaction between group membership and any of the other predictors, ps > 0.111. ...
