Engeström, Yrjö; Nuttall, Joce; Hopwood, Nick – Pedagogy, Culture and Society, 2022
Theories of agency are often borrowed from psychology and sociology; truly educational theories of agency are rare -- theories that not only classify and measure dimensions of agency but enable us to understand how its formation can be pedagogically facilitated. Based on Sannino's recent work on transformative agency by double stimulation (TADS),…

Kasikci, Furkan; Peker, Adem – International Journal of Contemporary Educational Research, 2022
Sensation-seeking, subjective vitality and happiness are interrelated constructs in the current literature. However, there is currently no research on how the relationship between these concepts is affected. This research aims to examine the mediating effect of resilience in the relationship between them, thus bridging a large gap in the field.…

Fontaine, Christine J.; Gräfe, Erin L.; Pinar, Cristina; Río, Itziar Bonilla-Del; Grandes, Pedro; Christie, Brian R. – Learning & Memory, 2020
Cannabinoid receptors are widely expressed throughout the hippocampal formation, but are particularly dense in the dentate gyrus (DG) subregion. We, and others, have shown in mice that cannabinoid type 1 receptors (CB1Rs) are involved in a long-term depression (LTD) that can be induced by prolonged 10 Hz stimulation of the medial perforant path…

Nagayoshi, Taikai; Ishikawa, Rie; Kida, Satoshi – Learning & Memory, 2022
Fear generalization is one of the main symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder. In rodents, the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) and the hippocampus (HPC) control the expression of contextual fear memory generalization. Consistently, ACC projections to the ventral HPC contribute to contextual fear generalization. However, the roles of ACC…

Everton, Lisa F.; Benfield, Jacqueline K.; Michou, Emilia; Hamdy, Shaheen; Bath, Philip M. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2022
Purpose: Information on reliability of outcome measures used to assess the effectiveness of interventions in dysphagia rehabilitation is lacking, particularly when used by different research groups. Here, we report on reliability of the penetration- aspiration scale (PAS) and temporal and clearance measures, determined using videofluoroscopy.…

Fry, Benjamin R.; Pence, Nathan T.; McLocklin, Andrew; Johnson, Alexander W. – Learning & Memory, 2021
The dopamine system has been implicated in decision-making particularly when associated with effortful behavior. We examined acute optogenetic stimulation of dopamine cells in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) as mice engaged in an effort-based decision-making task. Tyrosine hydroxylase-Cre mice were injected with Cre-dependent ChR2 or eYFP control…

Morselli, Daniele – Journal of Workplace Learning, 2021
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to operationalise and apply a three-level analysis of double stimulation in a Change Laboratory with teachers. Design/methodology/approach: Within qualitative inquiry, this Change Laboratory intervention was conducted as case study, by way of an intensive analysis of an individual unit. The macro-level deals…

Akremi, Haifa; Hamel, Raphaël; Dumas, Anne; Camden, Chantal; Corriveau, Hélène; Lepage, Jean-Francois – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2022
Evidence-based therapeutic options for children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) are scarce. This work explored the effects of cerebellar anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (atDCS) on three 48 h-apart motor sequence learning and upper limb coordination sessions in children with DCD. The results revealed that, as compared…

Berent, Iris; Platt, Melanie – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2022
Across languages, certain syllables are systematically preferred to others (e.g., "plaf > ptaf"). Here, we examine whether these preferences arise from motor simulation. In the simulation account, ill-formed syllables (e.g., "ptaf") are disliked because their motor plans are harder to simulate. Four experiments compared…

Lundie, Michael; Dasara, Harshith; Beeghly, Christopher; Kazmi, Ali; Krawczyk, Daniel – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2022
The objective of this study was to measure the contribution of the left frontopolar cortex (FPC) to analogical reasoning. Our measure of analogical reasoning derives from performance on the radiation problem, a creative problem-solving task first used in Gestalt psychology (Duncker, 1945). Success on this task is as low as 10 % without the…

Gnaoré, Karin – Journal of Educational Sciences, 2021
The following article looks at the role movement and sensorial stimuli do play in the educational approaches of Dr. Maria Montessori and Dr. Emmi Pikler as well as the Sensorial Integration and Psychomotor Therapy. The author of this paper has been studying, applying, and teaching all four approaches for many years and used her expertise in all…

Grant, Carolyn – Pedagogy, Culture and Society, 2022
Learners, because of their minor status, are a virtual absence in everyday school leadership work, particularly on the African continent. School leadership, therefore, continues to be misconceived as an adult phenomenon. Framed by Cultural Historical Activity Theory, this paper reports on a Southern African Higher Education study that engages with…

Eckert, Michael J.; Iyer, Kartik; Euston, David R.; Tatsuno, Masami – Learning & Memory, 2021
Neocortical sleep spindles have been shown to occur more frequently following a memory task, suggesting that a method to increase spindle activity could improve memory processing. Stimulation of the neocortex can elicit a slow oscillation (SO) and a spindle, but the feasibility of this method to boost SO and spindles over time has not been tested.…

Rajagopal, Sandhya; Nicholson, Katie; Putri, Tiara Rahadian; Addington, Joshua; Felde, Ashley – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2021
We evaluated a method for teaching children with autism spectrum disorder to respond to tactile stimulation of multiple body parts. Various objects (e.g., hairbrush) produced the sensations (e.g., prickly). In a multiple baseline design across participants, participants learned 9 sensation body part tacts and the evaluation concluded with tests of…

During the last 40 years, neuroscience has become one of the most central and most productive approaches to investigating autism. In this commentary, we assemble a group of established investigators and trainees to review key advances and anticipated developments in neuroscience research across five modalities most commonly employed in autism…
