Furthermore, neuronal connections between areas involved in finger motor movement, finger gnosia, and numerical processing have been posited. In this study, FMS and finger gnosia were investigated as predictors for preschool children's performance in numerical tasks. Preschool children (N = 153) completed FMS tasks measuring finger agility and finger dexterity as well as a non-motor finger gnosia task. Furthermore, children completed numerical tasks that involved finger use (i.e., finger counting and finger montring), and tasks that did not (i.e., picture-aided calculation and number line estimation). To control for possible confounding influences of domain general skills, we included measures of reasoning and spatial working memory. We found associations between FMS and both finger counting and calculation, but not finger montring. In contrast, finger gnosia was only associated with finger montring, but not finger counting and calculation. Surprisingly, there were no associations between FMS or finger gnosia with number line estimation. Findings highlight that the relationship between finger gnosia, FMS, and numerical skills is specific to task requirements. Possible implications are discussed.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-04-29T06:59:28Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Stoeger, Heidrun</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>Fine motor skills and finger gnosia contribute to preschool children's numerical competencies</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/35"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/57363/3/Fischer_2-qd1yv3glp4ia9.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Stoeger, Heidrun</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/"/> <dc:creator>Fischer, Ursula</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2022-04-04</dcterms:issued> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-04-29T06:59:28Z</dc:date> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/57363/3/Fischer_2-qd1yv3glp4ia9.pdf"/> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/35"/> <dc:contributor>Suggate, Sebastian Paul</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Fischer, Ursula</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/57363"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
