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…

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…

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…

Takeuchi, Naoyuki; Mori, Takayuki; Suzukamo, Yoshimi; Izumi, Shin-Ichi – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Metacognitive functions are important for both teachers and students to facilitate teaching and learning. The prefrontal cortex (PFC) plays a proven role in metacognition. As a pilot study, we evaluated the PFC activity of teachers and students using near-infrared spectroscopy devices to explore the neural mechanism of PFC underlying metacognitive…

Anderson, Ross C. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
In this commentary, I build on recent interdisciplinary models for embodied cognition with additional perspectives from affective neuroscience, educational psychology, creativity theory, and science education. I invoke William James and John Dewey, pioneers of an embodied philosophy of mind, alongside recent affective neuroscience theory about the…

Ruhaak, Amy E.; Cook, Bryan G. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
Educational neuromyths are commonly accepted, erroneous beliefs based on misunderstandings of neuroscience that contribute to pseudoscientific practice within education. We examined the beliefs and perspectives of special education pre-service teachers related to educational neuromyths and corresponding instructional practices using a…

Martín-Lobo, Pilar; Santiago-Ramajo, Sandra; Vergara-Moragues, Esperanza – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
Progress in applied neuroscience and neuropsychology in the educational context has revealed efficient methodologies for preventing academic failure and developing the potential of students. The aim of this work is to adopt a neuropsychological perspective to study learning-related differences between students with learning difficulties (LD),…

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…

Ferjan Ramirez, Naja; Kuhl, Patricia – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
The first years of life represent a unique window of opportunity for foreign language learning. However, key questions are: How much and what kind of foreign language exposure is needed to ignite learning? We conducted a foreign language (English) intervention in four public Infant Education Centers in Madrid, Spain. Intervention children (N =…

Polinsky, Naomi; Perez, Jasmin; Grehl, Mora; McCrink, Koleen – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
Longitudinal spatial language intervention studies have shown that greater exposure to spatial language improves children's performance on spatial tasks. Can short naturalistic, spatial language interactions also evoke improved spatial performance? In this study, parents were asked to interact with their child at a block wall exhibit in a…

Romero-Hall, Enilda; Scott, JoAnne – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
Cultural stereotypes rooted in both antiquated data and misinterpretation of data have long perpetuated the belief that older adults are unable to learn new concepts because they are doomed to lose brain cells at an alarming rate during their geriatric years. However, advances in neurophysiological technologies that allow researchers to observe…

Kuppen, Sarah E. A.; Bourke, Emilie – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
This study evaluated the ability for two rhythmic rhyming programs to raise phonological awareness in the early literacy classroom. Year 1 (5-6-year-olds) from low socioeconomic status schools in Bedfordshire, learned a program of sung or spoken rhythmic rhymes, or acted as controls. The project ran with two independent cohorts (Cohort 1 N = 98,…

Willingham, Daniel T. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
Although most teacher education programs include instruction in the basic science of psychology, practicing teachers report that this preparation has low utility. Researchers have considered what sort of information from psychology about children's thinking, emotion, and motivation would be useful for teachers' practice. Here, I take a different…

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…
