Abstract The aim of this study is to examine if there is a relation between number-space mapping and visual-spatial working memory and selective attention. The following tasks are completed to investigate these three aspects: The Counting Task, the Six Boxes Task and the Visual Search Task. Independent-sample t-tests and One-way-Analyses of Variance showed no relation between number-space mapping and visual-spatial working memory, except a positive relation between the counting direction and visual-spatial working memory. Visual-spatial working memory is better developed in children counting from left to right than in children counting from right to left. Besides that, a relation between number-space mapping and selective attention is found. Selective attention is better developed in children without signals of number-space mapping at adding and subtracting than in children with these signals. Following research has to be focused on explicit number-space mapping to get a complete vision of the relation between number-space mapping and visual-spatial working memory.
