Williams, Allison J.; Danovitch, Judith H.; Mills, Candice M. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Efforts have been made to promote children's interest in science, but little is known about how children's interest in science relates to other characteristics, such as science-specific curiosity, domain-general epistemic curiosity, and verbal intelligence. The current study examines how these factors relate to individual differences in children's…

Guerra, Giada; Tijms, Jurgen; Vaessen, Anniek; Tierney, Adam; Dick, Frederic; Bonte, Milene – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Reading skills are usually assessed in silent conditions, but children often experience noisy educational settings. Effects of auditory distraction on children's reading skills remain relatively unexplored. The present study investigates the influence of two features of background speech--intelligibility and loudness--on children's reading speed…

Dong, Liang; Gao, Tingting; Zheng, Wei; Zeng, Kebin; Wu, Xiushu – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
This study focuses on the application, advantages, and disadvantages of E-learning in neurology education. The findings of the study demonstrate that E-learning can effectively improve learning efficiency and reduce learning costs. Neurologists can access the right study material on the Internet anytime, anywhere. Compared with traditional…

Leth-Steensen, Craig; Gallitto, Elena; Haghbin, Mohsen; Hannan, Patricia A. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
PlayWisely is a novel approach to early learning designed to target the positive development of a wide range of cognitive and physical/motor abilities by stimulating the rapidly developing brain of very young children (from 4 months to 3 years of age). The current pilot study represents a first step toward providing an evidence base for the…

Burek, Brittany; Martinussen, Rhonda – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Success in postsecondary education requires proficiency with academic online information seeking. Navigating the internet to find information is a complicated task that is vulnerable to lapses in attention. This study examined the relationships among Canadian graduate students' self-reported behavioral inattention symptoms, awareness and…

Versteeg, Marjolein; Hafkemeijer, Anne; de Beaufort, Arnout Jan; Steendijk, Paul – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Obtaining adequate understanding of scientific concepts is considered challenging due to learners' misconceptions about natural phenomena. Misconceptions may coexist with scientific knowledge in the brain. Therefore, misconceptions must be cognitively inhibited in order to select the scientific knowledge. There is, however, lack of substantial…

Atit, Kinnari; Rocha, Kelsey – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Spatial skills are important for student success in STEM disciplines at the K-12 educational level. Teachers' spatial skills and feelings about completing spatial tasks influence their teaching as well as their students' spatial learning. However, the relation between teachers' spatial skills and their spatial anxiety is not well understood. Here…

Luria, Ela; Shalom, Maya; Levy, Daniel A. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
The Self-Determination Theory of motivation (SDT) has significantly guided educational policy and research. It maintains that learning succeeds when brought about by autonomous rather than controlled motivation, and that extrinsic reward motivation cannot engender effective learning. We present an alternative approach, rooted in recent insights…

Hauser, Marc D. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
For educators to help children exposed to adverse life experiences, it is necessary to understand how adversity impacts different mechanisms of learning, emotion, and planning as these capacities underpin success in schools and beyond. The goal of this paper is to review essential findings on how early life adversity transforms the brain which, in…

Baxter, Peta; Bekkering, Harold; Dijkstra, Ton; Droop, Mienke; van den Hurk, Marianne; Léoné, Frank – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Cognitive neuroscience has gained significant insight into the mechanisms underlying the mental lexicon and their impact on second language vocabulary learning. However, relatively little effort has been put into understanding how these mechanisms may impact instructional practices. We attempt to bridge this gap. Towards that end, we first…

Letang, Marie; Citron, Pascaline; Garbarg-Chenon, Julien; Houdé, Olivier; Borst, Grégoire – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Online citizen science allows us to bridge the gap between researchers and nonresearchers and to improve the scientific literacy of nonresearchers. The aims of the present study were: (1) to determine whether a 5-week randomized control trial conducted by teachers in their classroom could improve 7- to 12-year-old children's inhibitory control…

Bugden, S.; Peters, L.; Nosworthy, N.; Archibald, L.; Ansari, D. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Developmental dyscalculia (DD) is a mathematical learning disability that occurs in around 5%-7% of the population. At present, there are only a handful of screening tools to identify children that might be at risk of developing DD. The present study evaluated the classification accuracy of one such tool: The Numeracy Screener, a 2-min test of…

Braren, Stephen H.; Brandes-Aitken, Annie; Perry, Rosemarie E.; Williams, Kevon; Lyons, Krystalle; Rowe-Harriott, Sashana; Blair, Clancy – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
We examined interactions between baseline hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) activity in relation to executive functions (EF) in a sample (n = 1,005) of children in low wealth, nonurban communities at age 48 months. Salivary cortisol and respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) represented baseline HPA…

Krammer, Georg; Vogel, Stephan E.; Grabner, Roland H. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Neuromyths have been discussed to detrimentally affect educational practice, but the evidence for this assumption is still very scarce. We investigated whether 255 student-teacher' beliefs in neuromyths are related to their academic achievement (overall grade point averages and first-year practical courses). Believing or rejecting neuromyths that…

Liu, Yang; Zhang, Yu – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
One of the most important goals of Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) researchers is bridging the connection between science and educational practice. To achieve this goal, we propose a novel authentic partnership model based on the analyses of demands, capacities, and responsibilities of both researchers and local schools. The Peiyuan Project in…
