Abstract: Gevers et al's experimental paradigm was used to investigate that the coding modes of 7 to 11-year-old children's SNARC effect of numerical cognition under the symbols of Chinese characters. The stimuli were Arabic numbers (1, 2, 8, 9) and Chinese characters ("Left", "Right"). Subjects' task was to decide whether the presented number was larger or smaller than 5, select Chinese characters of left and right. The results showed that 7 to 11-year-old children performed the SNARC effect of number-space interactions in the task of numerical comparison under the symbols of Chinese characters, and the coding modes of 7 to 11-year-old children's SNARC effect of numerical cognition were visuospatial and verbal-spatial. The verbal-spatial coding was mainly. These results indicated that children from 7 year old could connect the small number with verbal information "Left" and the large number with verbal information "Right" when they represented numbers.
