Magnitude rather than number: More evidence needed

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


Leibovich et al. do not present enough empirical support to overturn decades of work supporting a number sense nor to convince the reader that a magnitude sense provides a better explanation of the literature. Here we highlight what we feel are the main points of weakness and the types of evidence that could be provided to be more convincing.
