Mental math linked to eye motion

According to this article:

When people performed addition, they triggered the same patterns of brain activity that light up when they looked right. When they did subtraction, the left-looking brain patterns activated.

Scientist suggest it might be because the areas in the brain we use for math were once used to processing visual spacial information.

So all those people who close their eyes when doing math must be stupid.
