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.…

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…

Rosenberg-Lee, Miriam – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
The promise of educational neuroscience lies in its potential to uncover mechanistic insights into the science of learning. However, to realize that promise, the field must overcome a fundamental difference between the constituent disciplines: neuroscience is primarily concerned with understanding how the brain works; whereas education attempts to…

Burgess, Laura G.; Riddell, Patricia M.; Fancourt, Amy; Murayama, Kou – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
This article provides an overview of research on social contagion in the context of education. We highlight the importance of students' social interactions in school, considering contagion between peers and contagion from teachers to students, using a motivation perspective. The framework of contagion is introduced broadly, followed by a focused…

Anreiter, Ina; Sokolowski, H. Moriah; Sokolowski, Marla B. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
Individuals of the same species display remarkable variation in behavior, even in identical contexts. Increasing complexity in behavioral phenotypes brings with it an increase in individual variation in the manifestation of those phenotypes, and human behavior undoubtedly stands at the pinnacle of complexity. In this article, we discuss current…

Commissar, Lia; Brookman-Byrne, Annie – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
In September 2016, the International Mind, Brain, and Education Society (IMBES) biennial conference took place in Toronto, Canada. The pre-conference (organized by the Wellcome Trust) was designed to share new findings, lessons learned, and inspirational innovation within the field, and to encourage the community to not only identify current…

Stafford-Brizard, K. Brooke; Cantor, Pamela; Rose, L. Todd – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
Mind, brain, and education is a field developed with two key purposes: (1) to accelerate the knowledge developed through research by using an interdisciplinary approach, and (2) to create a bridge to connect and apply this knowledge to educational practice. While great progress has been made with regard to the interdisciplinary efforts of mind,…

Hart, Sara A. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2016
This article proposes the Precision Education Initiative, which is the tailoring of education to the specific characteristics of the individual student. Mirroring precision medicine, the author lays out both near-term and longer term goals that educational research, and importantly educational practice, should follow.

Libertus, Melissa E. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2015
Research has shown that educated children and adults have access to two ways of representing numerical information: an approximate number system (ANS) that is present from birth and allows for quick approximations of numbers of objects encountered in one's environment, and an exact number system (ENS) that is acquired through experience and…

Evans, Miriam; Boucher, Alyssa R. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2015
Choice plays a critical role in promoting students' intrinsic motivation and deep engagement in learning. Across a range of academic outcomes and student populations, positive impacts have been seen when student autonomy is promoted through meaningful and personally relevant choice. This article presents a theoretical perspective on the…

Stringer, Steve; Tommerdahl, Jodi – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2015
As the field of Mind, Brain, and Education seeks new ways to credibly bridge the gap between neuroscience, the cognitive sciences, and education, various connections are being developed and tested. This article presents a framework and offers examples of one approach, predictive modeling within a virtual educational system that can include…

Habibi, Assal; Sarkissian, Alissa Der; Gomez, Martha; Ilari, Beatriz – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2015
Challenges associated with recruitment and retention of participants from underprivileged social communities, in addition to neuroscience researchers' unfamiliarity with these communities, possibly explain the limited number of individuals from these communities who participate in neuroscience research studies. The consequence is a scarcity of…

Schulke, Beverly Brown; Zimmermann, Laura K. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2014
In addressing the challenges faced by E-type (evening-type) students, researchers have pointed to the need for school schedules that reflect chronotypic concerns and the recognition of the importance of sleep for academic achievement and well-being. One approach to dealing with this issue for adolescent students has been to move the start of the…

Van Geert, Paul – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2014
The general aim of the article is to teach the reader how to transform conceptual models of change, development, and learning into mathematical expressions and how to use these equations to build dynamic models by means of the widely used spreadsheet program Excel. The explanation is supported by a number of Excel files, which the reader can…

Newcombe, Nora S. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2013
There is an increasing emphasis on evidence-based education, and the sciences of learning are progressing rapidly. But are reports, guidelines, and outreach enough to disseminate this knowledge and affect educational practice? In fact, policy makers and the public often resist evidence-based recommendations about education. This article suggests…
