He, Kekang – Lecture Notes in Educational Technology, 2017
This book examines research on creative thinking, both current and historical. It explores two dimensions of human thought (time and space) and two modes of thinking (conscious and unconscious) as well as both left and right brain functions and artistic and scientific creative activities. The book proposes a "Double Circulation" model of…

Borst, Gregoire; Thompson, William L.; Kosslyn, Stephen M. – American Psychologist, 2011
Traditionally, characterizations of the macrolevel functional organization of the human cerebral cortex have focused on the left and right cerebral hemispheres. However, the idea of left brain versus right brain functions has been shown to be an oversimplification. We argue here that a top-bottom divide, rather than a left-right divide, is a more…

Hankins, George. – Engineering Education, 1987
Describes the novice-to-expert model of human learning and compares it to the recent advances in the areas of artificial intelligence and expert systems. Discusses some of the characteristics of experts, proposing connections between them with expert systems and theories of left-right brain functions. (TW)

Olson, Meredith B. – Gifted Child Quarterly, 1977
Investigated with 58 gifted children (in grades 5 or 6) were differences in right and left hemispheric brain functions in the context of J. Piaget's theories of stages of cognitive development. (DB)

Rubenzer, Ronald L.; Rubenzer, Donna O. – 1984
Designed to accompany an all-day "brain" workshop on neurological aspects of learning, the manual contains charts and illustrations depicting the role and function of the right and left hemispheres. Additional material addresses such topics as physiological evolution of the brain, disharmony between left/right brain functions, comparisons between…

Dumbrower, Jule; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
This study attempts to obtain evidence of the construct validity of pupil ability tests hypothesized to represent orientation to right, left, or integrated hemispheric function, and of teacher observation subscales intended to reveal behaviors in school setting that were hypothesized to portray preference for right or left brain function.

Mills, Randy K. – OAH Magazine of History, 1988
Briefly reviews theories of brain hemisphere functions and draws implications for social studies instruction. Maintains that the metaphor aids the development of understanding because it connects right and left brain functions. Provides a learning activity based on the metaphor of the U.S. government functioning as a machine. (BSR)

Palmis, Sarah; Velay, Jean-Luc; Habib, Michel; Anton, Jean-Luc; Nazarian, Bruno; Sein, Julien; Longcamp, Marieke – Developmental Science, 2021
While the brain network supporting handwriting has previously been defined in adults, its organization in children has never been investigated. We compared the handwriting network of 23 adults and 42 children (8- to 11-year-old). Participants were instructed to write the alphabet, the days of the week, and to draw loops while being scanned. The…

Zhu, Wenfeng; Yang, Wenjing; Qiu, Jiang; Tian, Fang; Chen, Qunlin; Cao, Guikang; Zhang, Qinglin; Ming, Dan – Creativity Research Journal, 2019
Evidence from a range of fields shows that representation-connection (RC) is the key step towards the solution of a real-world insight problem. However, no study has focused on the inter-individual variability in RC, and little is known about whether structural and resting-state functional signals can account for inter-individual differences in…

El-Koumy, Abdel Salam Abdel Khalek – Online Submission, 2009
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of homogeneous versus heterogeneous reading-style grouping on EFL students' non-preferred reading style and reading comprehension. The study used a pretest-posttest experimental design. The original subjects of the study (N=86) were Egyptian English major senior students during the 2005/2006…

Almanea, Manar – Arab World English Journal, 2021
The present study is concerned with the relationship between brain hemisphericity and the reading comprehension of adult Saudi EFL learners. The tendency to rely on one side of the brain over the other can affect the degree of success in learning a foreign language as well as the appropriateness of learning and teaching strategies. A total of 122…

Kalbfleisch, M. Layne; Gillmarten, Charles – Roeper Review, 2013
As neuroimaging technologies increase their sensitivity to assess the function of the human brain and results from these studies draw the attention of educators, it becomes paramount to identify misconceptions about what these data illustrate and how these findings might be applied to educational contexts. Some of these "neuromyths" have…

Saputra, Yanty Hardi; Sabana, Setiawan – Journal of Education and Practice, 2016
Researcher and professionals that started researching about brains since 1930 believe that left brain is a rational brain, which is tightly related with the IO, rational thinking, arithmetic thinking, verbal, segmental, focus, serial (linear), finding the differences, and time management, Meanwhile right brain is the part of brain that controlled…

Background: A growing body of literature has demonstrated the importance of discourse assessment in patients who suffered from brain injury, both in the left and right hemispheres, as discourse represents a key component of functional communication. However, little is known about the relationship between gray matter density and macrolinguistic…

Struve, Nancy – 1982
The unit provides information on the study of the human brain for students in grades 5-9 with suggestions for extending the lessons for gifted and talented students. Learning activities are offered for ten lessons (sample subtopics in parentheses); introduction to the unit (student pretest and posttest); brain growth; medulla-oblongata-reptilian…
