CitationDehaene, Stanislas, Véronique Izard, Pierre Pica, and Elizabeth Spelke. 2009. Response to comment on "Log or linear? Distinct intuitions of the number scale in Western and Amazonian indigene cultures." Science 323(5910): 38.
AbstractThe performance of the Mundurucu on the number-space task may exemplify a general competence for drawing analogies between space and other linear dimensions, but Mundurucu participants spontaneously chose number when other dimensions were available. Response placement may not reflect the subjective scale for numbers, but Cantlon et al.’s proposal of a linear scale with scalar variability requires questionable additional hypotheses.
