Homer, Bruce D.; Ober, Teresa M.; Rose, Maya C.; MacNamara, Andrew; Mayer, Richard E.; Plass, Jan L. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Adolescence is a period of rapid cognitive change, including an initial increase in speed of cognitive processing and a more gradual increase in efficiency of cognitive processing. This study examined how neurophysiological changes associated with adolescent development can inform the design of game-based executive function (EF) training. Two…

Lindgren, Robb; Morphew, Jason; Kang, Jina; Junokas, Michael – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Research from brain science and the learning sciences support the notion that human cognition is grounded in our sensorimotor engagement with the physical world and that processes of learning can be shaped by our movements and actions. Increasing recognition that effective educational interventions can be seeded with embodied actions is paralleled…

Dahlstrom-Hakki, Ibrahim; Asbell-Clarke, Jodi; Rowe, Elizabeth – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
The value of neurocognitive measures to study memory, attention, cognition, and learning is well established. However, the vast majority of work using these tools is performed in tightly controlled lab experiments using simple lab stimuli. This article looks at the viability of using multimodal neurocognitive instruments to measure implicit…

Uncapher, Melina R. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Since the advent of computers, scientists who study how people learn have been utilizing technology to uncover the cognitive and neural mechanisms of learning. Recent technological advances have allowed learning scientists to move their research out of the lab and into the wild, to investigate how students learn in real-world environments.…

Antonenko, Pavlo D.; Davis, Robert; Wang, Jiahui; Celepkolu, Mehmet – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
As teammates adjust their cognition and behavior, synchronizations of information can be observed across verbal, postural, and neurophysiological systems. This study explored the synchrony of mutually interacting brains, or team neurosynchrony, during cyber-enabled collaborative problem solving. Mixed-sex dyads defined and solved an authentic…

Schneps, Matthew H.; Chen, Chen; Pomplun, Marc; Wang, Jiahui; Crosby, Anne D.; Kent, Kevin – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
People who are practiced in using text-to-speech can drive listening speeds to surprisingly high limits. Here, we investigate the extent to which people who are otherwise untrained, with and without dyslexia, can increase their reading speed when forcibly accelerated visual or auditory presentations are used in isolation or in tandem. The…

Hanner, Erinn; Braham, Emily J.; Elliott, Leanne; Libertus, Melissa E. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Young children have better math abilities when their parents engage in more math-related conversations with them. Yet, previous studies have found that math talk occurs only very infrequently in everyday interactions. In the present study, we sought to promote adult-child conversations about math in a naturalistic context using minimal…

Blanchette Sarrasin, Jérémie; Riopel, Martin; Masson, Steve – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Previous studies have revealed that "neuromyths," which are misconceptions about the brain, show a high prevalence among teachers in different countries. However, little is known about the origin of these ideas; that is to say, the sources that may influence their presence among teachers. This research aims to identify the prevalence of…

Erbeli, Florina – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Given a shift in the role of genetics in the context of special education, this commentary outlines advances in our understanding of genetic influences on learning disabilities. In particular, it focuses on advances that have implications for instruction and interventions conducted by special educators, and calls for broadening of the scope of…

Zhu, Yanmei; Zhang, Li; Leng, Yue; Pang, Ridong; Wang, Xiaole – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Event-related potentials are used to test the hypothesis that an intuitive misconception persists in the mind even after the acquisition of scientific knowledge. We investigated the temporal dynamics of neural mechanisms in solving a scientific problem involving a common misconception. It showed that the increased P2 component was elicited by the…

Ouwehand, Kim; Dijkstra, Katinka; van Gog, Tamara; Paas, Fred – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
We investigated whether finger pointing toward picture locations can be used as an external cognitive control tool to guide attention and compensate for the immature cognitive control functions in children compared with young adults. Item and source memory performance was compared for picture-location pairs that were either semantically congruent…

Anderson, Ross C. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
In this commentary, I build on recent interdisciplinary models for embodied cognition with additional perspectives from affective neuroscience, educational psychology, creativity theory, and science education. I invoke William James and John Dewey, pioneers of an embodied philosophy of mind, alongside recent affective neuroscience theory about the…

Müller, Barbara C. N.; Marx, Anton K. G.; Paulus, Markus; Meinhardt, Jörg – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
The achievement motive is one of the core motives of human behavior and can be divided into two motives: an approach motive (i.e., hope for success [HS]), and an avoidance motive (i.e., fear of failure [FF]). Research has demonstrated that frontal electroencephalogram (EEG) asymmetry in the alpha frequency band is an important marker for…

Nissim, Michal; Ram-Tsur, Ronit; Glicksohn, Joseph; Zion, Michal; Mevarech, Zemira; Harpaz, Yuval; Dotan Ben-Soussan, Tal – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
Aquatic motor activity (AMA) has been reported to affect motor and cognitive abilities. However, the neural mechanisms that may mediate this relationship have never been explored. The traditional functions of the cerebellum include involvement in coordination and balance. Recent studies have shown cerebellar activity during verbal working memory…

Ruhaak, Amy E.; Cook, Bryan G. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
Educational neuromyths are commonly accepted, erroneous beliefs based on misunderstandings of neuroscience that contribute to pseudoscientific practice within education. We examined the beliefs and perspectives of special education pre-service teachers related to educational neuromyths and corresponding instructional practices using a…
