An ERP study with gifted and excelling male adolescents: Solving short insight-based problems

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper presents a part of Multidimensional Examination of Mathematical Giftedness. This part is focuses on brain activity (using Event-Related Potentials methodology) associated with solving short choice-reaction insight-based mathematical problems. We report on the findings related to 70 right hand male-students who were chosen for comparative data analysis. We examine problem-solving performance as revealed in behavioural and neuro-cognitive dimensions. We demonstrate differences revealed in problem-solving performance of gifted as compared to non-gifted participants as well as of excelling as compared to non-excelling participants. Based on the findings of this study we argue that excellence in mathematics is not necessarily related to general giftedness.
