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…

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…

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…

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…

Gotlieb, Rebecca J. M.; Pollack, Courtney; Younger, Jessica W.; Toomarian, Elizabeth Y.; Allaire-Duquette, Geneviève; Mariager, Nadja M. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
An increasing number of scholars are being trained in the field of mind, brain, and education (MBE), yet discussions of trainees' needs and how to meet them are rare. We, the inaugural International Mind, Brain, and Education Society (IMBES) Trainee Board, identify three broad needs of MBE trainees: guidance and support, greater access to and…

Catrysse, Leen; Gijbels, David; Donche, Vincent – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
In educational research, there is a growing interest in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine students' levels of processing. As there is a growing interest in the use of fMRI, a systematic review was conducted to examine how deep and surface levels of processing are operationalized within the neuroscientific field. In addition,…

Ribner, Andrew; Moeller, Korbinian; Willoughby, Michael; Blair, Clancy – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
The aim of this study was to identify mathematical competencies in early childhood and cognitive correlates of those competencies in a prospective longitudinal sample of children (N = 1,292) in predominantly low-income and nonurban communities in the United States. General mental ability, processing speed, vocabulary, and the working memory (WM),…

Gijselaers, Hieronymus J. M.; Meijs, Celeste; Neroni, Joyce; Kirschner, Paul A.; de Groot, Renate H. M. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
The goal of this study was to investigate whether single executive function (EF) tests were predictive for learning performance in mainly young and middle-aged adults. The tests measured shifting and updating. Processing speed was also measured. In an observational study, cognitive performance and learning performance were measured objectively in…

Pietsch, Stefanie; Böttcher, Caroline; Jansen, Petra – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
The long-term physical activity in specific sport activities can change the quality of mental rotation performance. This study investigates the influence of "Life Kinetik"--a motion program with tasks of cognition and motor coordination--on mental rotation performance of 44 primary school-aged children. While the experimental group…

Ergas, Oren; Berkovich-Ohana, Aviva – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
Since the turn of the millennium, there has been a surge of interest in diverse forms of spontaneous thinking, such as mind-wandering, and their associated brain networks. Studies demonstrate the pervasiveness of these phenomena as well as their effects on education-relevant domains such as academic skills, well-being, creativity, executive…

Batini, Federico; Bartolucci, Marco; De Carlo, Ermelinda – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
Dropping out of school can involve several internal and external factors. Regarding internal factors, learning difficulties and the experience of failure could trigger the withdrawal of commitment, rejection of and resistance to school, as well as a general perception of inadequacy. Here, we show the results of a series of interventions…

Shing, Yee Lee; Brod, Garvin – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2016
The encoding, consolidation, and retrieval of events and facts form the basis for acquiring new skills and knowledge. Prior knowledge can enhance those memory processes considerably and thus foster knowledge acquisition. But prior knowledge can also hinder knowledge acquisition, in particular when the to-be-learned information is inconsistent with…

Knox, Rockey – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2016
The emerging field of mind, brain, and education (MBE) is grappling with core issues associated with its identity, scope, and method. This article examines some of the most pressing issues that structure the development of MBE as a transdisciplinary effort. Rather than representing the ongoing debates in MBE as superficial squabbles to eventually…

Kneževic, Martina; Veroude, Kim; Jolles, Jelle; Krabbendam, Lydia – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2016
Cognitive challenges during transition to adulthood are generally high and require particular skills, such as self-control, performance evaluation, and behavioral adjustment for success in everyday living. However, age and sex differences in timing and efficiency of brain maturational processes in the early twenties are not well known. We used a…

Gnaedinger, Emily K.; Hund, Alycia M.; Hesson-McInnis, Matthew S. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2016
The goal was to test whether cognitive flexibility moderates the relation between reading strategy use and reading comprehension during the elementary years. Seventy-five second- through fifth-grade students completed a think aloud task and a metacognitive questionnaire to measure reading strategies, two card-sorting tasks to measure general and…
