Hauser, Marc D. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
The mind and brain sciences have uncovered important details about the mechanisms underlying goal attainment, including strategies to overcome obstacles. A suite of self-regulatory strategies have made relatively little contact with education, despite cost-effective methods and striking results in both educational contexts as well as other areas…

Markant, Douglas B.; Ruggeri, Azzurra; Gureckis, Todd M.; Xu, Fei – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2016
Despite widespread consensus among educators that "active learning" leads to better outcomes than comparatively passive forms of instruction, it is often unclear why these benefits arise. In this article, we review research showing that the opportunity to control the information experienced while learning leads to improved memory…

Prabhakar, Janani; Coughlin, Christine; Ghetti, Simona – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2016
Episodic prospection is the ability to mentally simulate personal future events that are rich in contextual detail and plausible for the individual. It therefore incorporates episodic information (who, what, where, and when of a particular event), as well as details about one's self (e.g., knowledge, goals, motivations and desires). The ability to…

Baggetta, Peter; Alexander, Patricia A. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2016
Executive function is comprised of different behavioral and cognitive elements and is considered to play a significant role in learning and academic achievement. Educational researchers frequently study the construct. However, because of its complexity functionally, the research on executive function can at times be both confusing and…

Owens, Judith; Drobnich, Darrel; Baylor, Allison; Lewin, Daniel – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2014
In response to the scientific evidence documenting both profound developmental changes in sleep and circadian biology during adolescence and the myriad of negative health, performance, and safety outcomes risks associated with chronic sleep loss, at least 70 public school districts in the United States, representing approximately 1,000 schools,…

Zocchi, Meghan; Pollack, Courtney – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2013
In recent years, educational neuroscience has begun to move into the limelight, suggesting an increased importance on the ethical considerations of educational neuroscience work, or "educational neuroethics." In a departure from previous work on educational neuroethics, this article focuses on the ethical considerations that are applicable to…

Doucerain, Matthias; Fellows, Lesley K. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2012
This literature review uses four dimensions to classify and compare how food-related decision-making is conceptualized and experimentally assessed in neuroscience and other disciplines: (1) food-related decision-making other than the decision of "what" to eat that is part of each eating episode, (2) decision complexes other than the…

Newcombe, Nora S.; Frick, Andrea – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2010
Spatial representation and thinking have evolutionary importance for any mobile organism. In addition, they help reasoning in domains that are not obviously spatial, for example, through the use of graphs and diagrams. This article reviews the literature suggesting that mental spatial transformation abilities, while present in some precursory form…
