Homer, Bruce D.; Ober, Teresa M.; Rose, Maya C.; MacNamara, Andrew; Mayer, Richard E.; Plass, Jan L. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Adolescence is a period of rapid cognitive change, including an initial increase in speed of cognitive processing and a more gradual increase in efficiency of cognitive processing. This study examined how neurophysiological changes associated with adolescent development can inform the design of game-based executive function (EF) training. Two…

Lindgren, Robb; Morphew, Jason; Kang, Jina; Junokas, Michael – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Research from brain science and the learning sciences support the notion that human cognition is grounded in our sensorimotor engagement with the physical world and that processes of learning can be shaped by our movements and actions. Increasing recognition that effective educational interventions can be seeded with embodied actions is paralleled…

Dahlstrom-Hakki, Ibrahim; Asbell-Clarke, Jodi; Rowe, Elizabeth – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
The value of neurocognitive measures to study memory, attention, cognition, and learning is well established. However, the vast majority of work using these tools is performed in tightly controlled lab experiments using simple lab stimuli. This article looks at the viability of using multimodal neurocognitive instruments to measure implicit…

Uncapher, Melina R. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Since the advent of computers, scientists who study how people learn have been utilizing technology to uncover the cognitive and neural mechanisms of learning. Recent technological advances have allowed learning scientists to move their research out of the lab and into the wild, to investigate how students learn in real-world environments.…

Antonenko, Pavlo D.; Davis, Robert; Wang, Jiahui; Celepkolu, Mehmet – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
As teammates adjust their cognition and behavior, synchronizations of information can be observed across verbal, postural, and neurophysiological systems. This study explored the synchrony of mutually interacting brains, or team neurosynchrony, during cyber-enabled collaborative problem solving. Mixed-sex dyads defined and solved an authentic…

Schneps, Matthew H.; Chen, Chen; Pomplun, Marc; Wang, Jiahui; Crosby, Anne D.; Kent, Kevin – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
People who are practiced in using text-to-speech can drive listening speeds to surprisingly high limits. Here, we investigate the extent to which people who are otherwise untrained, with and without dyslexia, can increase their reading speed when forcibly accelerated visual or auditory presentations are used in isolation or in tandem. The…

Hanner, Erinn; Braham, Emily J.; Elliott, Leanne; Libertus, Melissa E. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Young children have better math abilities when their parents engage in more math-related conversations with them. Yet, previous studies have found that math talk occurs only very infrequently in everyday interactions. In the present study, we sought to promote adult-child conversations about math in a naturalistic context using minimal…

Blanchette Sarrasin, Jérémie; Riopel, Martin; Masson, Steve – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Previous studies have revealed that "neuromyths," which are misconceptions about the brain, show a high prevalence among teachers in different countries. However, little is known about the origin of these ideas; that is to say, the sources that may influence their presence among teachers. This research aims to identify the prevalence of…

Erbeli, Florina – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Given a shift in the role of genetics in the context of special education, this commentary outlines advances in our understanding of genetic influences on learning disabilities. In particular, it focuses on advances that have implications for instruction and interventions conducted by special educators, and calls for broadening of the scope of…

Zhu, Yanmei; Zhang, Li; Leng, Yue; Pang, Ridong; Wang, Xiaole – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Event-related potentials are used to test the hypothesis that an intuitive misconception persists in the mind even after the acquisition of scientific knowledge. We investigated the temporal dynamics of neural mechanisms in solving a scientific problem involving a common misconception. It showed that the increased P2 component was elicited by the…

Ouwehand, Kim; Dijkstra, Katinka; van Gog, Tamara; Paas, Fred – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
We investigated whether finger pointing toward picture locations can be used as an external cognitive control tool to guide attention and compensate for the immature cognitive control functions in children compared with young adults. Item and source memory performance was compared for picture-location pairs that were either semantically congruent…

van der Aar, L. P. E; Crone, E. A; Peters, S. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Educational decision-making is a complex process where individual factors such as how adolescents think about and evaluate themselves could play an important role. In this study, (N = 84), we combined behavioral and neural correlates of self-concept and self-esteem to examine what characterizes adolescents who struggle with educational…

Brookman-Byrne, Annie; Mareschal, Denis; Tolmie, Andrew K.; Dumontheil, Iroise – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Relational reasoning, the ability to detect meaningful patterns, matures through adolescence. The unique contributions of verbal analogical and nonverbal matrix relational reasoning to science and maths are not well understood. Functional magnetic resonance imaging data were collected during science and maths problem-solving, and participants…

LeRoy, Adam Scott – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Response to Intervention (RTI) is an approach that can address children's problems in school. However, research has not consistently supported positive effects of RTI. I use the dialectical method to suggest RTI researchers have not adequately focused on children's personal experiences. The effects of persistent, negative experience are observable…

Brookman-Byrne, Annie; Commissar, Lia – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
The 2018 EARLI SIG 22 Neuroscience and Education conference aimed to facilitate the discussion and sharing of research and translation in educational neuroscience. In this article, we first describe and evaluate the approach taken in organizing the conference, which followed recommendations from the educational neuroscience community. We then…
