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…

Steenbeek, Henderien W.; van Geert, Paul L. C. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2015
In the context of an educational or clinical intervention, we often ask questions such as "How does this intervention influence the task behavior of autistic children?" or "How does working memory influence inhibition of immediate responses?" What do we mean by the word "influence" here? In this article, we introduce…

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…

Goldin, Andrea Paula; Calero, Cecilia Ines; Pena, Marcela; Ribeiro, Sidarta; Sigman, Mariano – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2013
In March 2012, 30 faculty and 49 students from all over the world met in El Calafate, Argentina, during two intense weeks. It was the second Latin American School for Education, Cognitive, and Neural Sciences (LASchool), sponsored by the James S. McDonnell Foundation. The LA School seeks to critically examine research findings potentially relevant…

Fischer, Kurt W. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2009
The primary goal of the emerging field of Mind, Brain, and Education is to join biology, cognitive science, development, and education in order to create a sound grounding of education in research. The growing, worldwide movement needs to avoid the myths and distortions of popular conceptions of brain and genetics and build on the best integration…

Schulte-Korne, Gerd; Ludwig, Kerstin U.; el Sharkawy, Jennifer; Nothen, Markus M.; Muller-Myhsok, Bertram; Hoffmann, Per – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2007
Our understanding of the causes of a developmental disorder like dyslexia has received recent input from both neuroscience and genetics. The discovery of 4 candidate genes for dyslexia and the identification of neuronal networks engaged when children read and spell are the basis for introducing this knowledge into education. However, the input…
