Eadaoin J. Slattery; Patrick Ryan; Donal G. Fortune; Laura P. McAvinue – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2024
This study evaluated the impact of a theory-driven cognitive attention training program, "Keeping Score!," in improving students' sustained attention capacity. Training was based on sustained updating. Students engaged this process by mentally keeping score during an interactive game of table tennis without external aids. Students (9-11…

Conor Barker; Kathryn Isenor Yorke; Emily Mak; Ethan C. Draper; Erin L. Mazerolle – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2024
Previous work suggested that sharing personal stories is effective for knowledge translation (KT) of the neuroscience of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) for a teacher audience. In the current study, we experimentally evaluated the impact of personal story and lived experience on a similar KT activity. We measured knowledge and…

Silvia A. Bunge – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2024
There is a vast literature on "executive functioning," or the control of one's thoughts and actions in pursuit of a goal. This broad construct is conceptualized as comprising multiple executive functions (EFs) that support academic achievement and other important life outcomes. However, there is a lack of consensus regarding what,…

Home enrichment plays an important role in shaping children's development. In the current study, we inquired whether home enrichment was associated with pre-schoolers' visual working memory (VWM) function, a critical cognitive system necessary for maintaining information for short periods of time. Home enrichment was assessed using an adapted…

Sona C. Kumar; Amanda S. Haber; Kathleen H. Corriveau – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2024
The current study explores differences in messages that preschool teachers send girls and boys about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Video footage of a preschool classroom (16 hr; N = 6 teachers; 20 children) was transcribed. Teachers' questions were coded for question-type and whether the question was directed to a boy or a…

Joëlle V. F. Coumans; Stuart Wark – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2024
Over the past century, health knowledge has advanced dramatically, so it is expected that future health professionals will need to learn effectively in the workplace and adapt to novel situations that cannot yet be predicted. Simultaneously, the demographics of university students have changed significantly in regard to age, gender, and…

Costanza Ruffini; Camilla Chini; Giulia Lombardi; Silvia Della Rocca; Annarita Monaco; Sara Campana; Chiara Pecini – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2024
Interventions targeting cognitive control processes, such as Executive Functions (EF) have recently been experimented to enhance early math skills. This pilot study explored the feasibility and effectiveness of an intervention integrating EF activities into the mathematical domain among second-grade students. One hundred and four…

Paul Howard-Jones; Annabel Scott; Carolina Gordillo – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2024
The teaching-learning relationship in online microteaching was explored using mixed methods. Adults (N = 40) alternated roles of "teacher" and "student" during a 15-min language learning session. Video analysis using a context-specific framework based on the science of learning revealed diversity in teaching approaches.…

Solange Denervaud; David A. Tovar; Jean-François Knebel; Emeline Mullier; Yasser Alemán- Gómez; Patric Hagmann; Micah M. Murray – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2024
Error-monitoring is a crucial cognitive process that enables us to adapt to the constantly changing environment. The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) plays a vital role in error-monitoring, and its prolonged maturation suggests that it can be influenced by experience-dependent plasticity. To explore this possibility, we collected morphometric…

Moira R. Dillon; Cindy R. Lawrence – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2024
University research labs focusing on education, psychology, and cognitive development have been collaborating with museums more and more over the past decade. Nevertheless, cognitive science labs that primarily engage in basic as opposed to applied research may find it difficult to entice museums to collaborate, and existing collaborations may…

Tzu-Hua Wang; Chien-Hui Kao – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2024
Studies have demonstrated that task-evoked pupillary responses (TEPRs) can be adopted to measure the examinee's cognitive load. This study compared three approaches for the measurement of TEPRs, mean pupil diameter, mean pupil dilation, and mean percentage of pupil dilation, to determine the best-fit measuring method. The valid participants of…

Ann-Kathrin Hennes; Alfred Schabmann; Barbara Maria Schmidt – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2024
In the educational context, there are numerous "neuromyths" about how findings from neuroscience can be used to improve teaching and learning. International research has shown that the majority of teachers tend to believe in these and use them in the classroom. Since the belief in neuromyths might not enhance or even have adverse effects…

Hassinger-Das, Brenna; Dore, Rebecca A.; Zosh, Jennifer M. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2023
Abstract Although the presence of toys in childhood has remained steady for decades, the types of toys that fill children's toy boxes have changed, especially over the last 10-15 years. Many of today's toys are marked by technological enhancements, from a shape sorter driven by a singing bear to robotic plastic animals designed to match a…

Shelton, Tricia; Benatowicz, Corinne; Healy, Pat; Ryan, Neal D.; Cameron, Judy L. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2023
Adolescence is a key developmental period for developing and strengthening brain circuits that underlie effective decision-making skills, which profoundly impact lifelong health and academic, professional, and economic achievement. But decision-making skills are learned rather than inherent. School presents an ideal environment for the direct…

Lothes, John E., II; Matney, Sara; Naseer, Zayne; Pfyffer, Riley – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2023
Research shows that mindfulness interventions for test anxiety in a college student population are beneficial (Lothes, Matney, & Naseer, 2022). This study assessed the effects of online mindfulness practices over a 5-week period on anxiety and test anxiety in college students. Participants included 20 students that were randomly assigned to…
