An Educational Perspective on the Hemispheric Process of the Brain.
Languis, Marlin; Kraft, Rosemarie Harter
This article discusses past research on the hemispheric process of the brain, proposes an educational perspective based on this research, and lists several areas for interdisciplinary study of the relationship between education and the psychobiological dimensions of learning and learning problems. In developing an educational perspective of the hemispheric brain process, three elements are identified: the historic recognition of the two modes of intelligence; consideration of the physiological dimensions of learning behavior; and hemispheric brain functioning research, particularly the techniques of dichotic listening, tachistoscopic presentation time, and electroencephalographic measurement. The article lists six areas of educational research that require an emphasis on hemispheric brain process: reduction of measurement error in educational assessment, task analysis, instructional assessment, interaction and communication, learning problems. and individual ability. An extensive bibliography accompanies the article. (MAI)
