The central correlates of mathematical calculation involved bilateral lateral parietal lobes by BOLD-based fMRI. And spatial template of the default-mode network (DMN) included extensive medial and lateral parietal lobes using independent component analysis. Interaction of calculation-relevant and DMN-modulated regions was proposed for type I error in the fMRI analysis. In this study, conjunction analysis of (1) meta-analyses using activation likelihood estimation of twelve published references of mathematical calculation, (2) spatial template of DMN and parametric fMRI results of digit naming, one-digit and two-digit addition at a 3T MRI system was applied to examine the role of lateral parietal regions.
