Khetrapal, Neha – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2023
The scientific study of religion has steered toward materiality. Herein, researchers have highlighted the intricate role of the human body and its sensorium for perceiving objects. With this trend, a text-based approach to religion has become less prominent. However, parallel exploratory efforts have been underreported for religious education…

Natalia Kucirkova; Ida Bruheim Jensen – European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, 2024
This study extends the research on shared book reading (SBR) by specifically examining the role of smell in parent-child SBR sessions observed at home. Drawing on qualitative methods, we analysed the verbal engagement of ten Norwegian families and their three to five-year-olds reading an olfactory book (the scratch-and-sniff book "Peter…

Natalia Kucirkova; Ida Bruheim Jensen – Early Child Development and Care, 2023
We investigated adult-child shared book reading of olfactory books that stimulate the sense of smell through scratch-and-sniff surfaces. We observed ten adult-child dyads reading olfactory books at home and documented the characteristics and quality markers of their olfactory engagement. Drawing on the principles of learning sciences and…

Spence, Charles – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2021
In recent decades, there has been an explosion of research into the crossmodal influence of olfactory cues on multisensory person perception. Numerous peer-reviewed studies have documented that a variety of olfactory stimuli, from ambient malodours through to fine fragrances, and even a range of chemosensory body odours can influence everything…

Petitpierre, Geneviève; Dind, Juliane; De Blasio, Catherine; Gremaud, Germaine – Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, 2022
Background: Olfaction provides information on very important dimensions of the environment; however the olfactory abilities of children and young people with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD) remain largely unknown. This within-subjects study explores olfactory detection abilities in children with PIMD. Method: Twenty-two…

Kvittingen, Lise; Sjursnes, Birte Johanne; Schmid, Rudolf – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
In organic chemistry textbooks (S)-(-)-limonene, (-)-limonene or l-limonene, is often given credit for the smell of lemons, while the R-analogue, (+)-limonene or d-limonene, is credited with that of oranges. Results from two odor tests revealed that few persons in the test associated (R)-(+)-limonene with oranges and (S)-(-)-limonene with lemons,…

Sorokowska, Agnieszka; Nord, Marie; Stefanczyk, Michal Mikolaj; Larsson, Maria – Learning & Memory, 2022
Reinstating the olfactory learning context can increase access to memory information, but it is not fully clear which memory functions are subject to an enhancing odor context reinstatement effect. Here, we tested whether congruent odor context during encoding and recall positively affected declarative and nondeclarative memory scores using a…

Abel, Roman – Cognitive Science, 2023
Research on sequence effects on learning "visual" categories has shown that interleaving (i.e., studying the categories in a mixed manner) facilitates category induction as compared to blocking (i.e., studying the categories one by one), but learners are unaware of the interleaving effect and prefer blocking. However, little attention…

Page, Damien; Sidebottom, Kay – British Educational Research Journal, 2022
As places of learning, schools inevitably foreground cognition. Neglected in schools and in the literature is the body, often an inconvenience or barrier to learning rather than a site of perception and understanding. Where the body is considered, it is primarily concerned with pedagogy and children rather than analysing the broad range of…

Quintanilla, Julian; Cox, Brittney M.; Gall, Christine M.; Mahler, Stephen V.; Lynch, Gary – Learning & Memory, 2021
Evidence suggests encoding of recent episodic experiences may be enhanced by a subsequent salient event. We tested this hypothesis by giving rats a 3-min unsupervised experience with four odors and measuring retention after different delays. Animals recognized that a novel element had been introduced to the odor set at 24 but not 48 h. However,…

Nartey, Michaelina N.; Peña-Castillo, Lourdes; LeGrow, Megan; Doré, Jules; Bhattacharya, Sriya; Darby-King, Andrea; Carew, Samantha J.; Yuan, Qi; Harley, Carolyn W.; McLean, John H. – Learning & Memory, 2020
In the olfactory bulb, a cAMP/PKA/CREB-dependent form of learning occurs in the first week of life that provides a unique mammalian model for defining the epigenetic role of this evolutionarily ancient plasticity cascade. Odor preference learning in the week-old rat pup is rapidly induced by a 10-min pairing of odor and stroking. Memory is…

Williams, Gemma; Corbyn, Jill; Hart, Angie – Child Care in Practice, 2023
Poor mental health--compared to that of the neurotypical child population--is a serious concern for many autistic children and young people around the world. In the UK, we have an increasing number of autistic young people receiving care in NHS funded in-patient mental health facilities. While sensory processing differences have now been added to…

Pieniak, Michal; Rönsch, Markus; Oleszkiewicz, Anna; Abele, Stephan; Hummel, Thomas – Vocations and Learning, 2023
Research has demonstrated links between sociodemographic background and educational achievements in vocational education and training. Student achievements may be additionally impacted by individual characteristics specifically relevant to the domain of the professional training. In the context of professional culinary education, student…

Spence, Charles – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2020
The last few years have seen a rapid growth of interest amongst researchers in the crossmodal correspondences. One of the correspondences that has long intrigued artists is the putative association between colours and odours. While traditionally conceptualised in terms of synaesthesia, over the last quarter century or so, at least 20 published…
