Tilp, Markus; Scharf, Carina; Payer, Gerald; Presker, Maximilian; Fink, Andreas – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Physical activity has not only been associated with increased physical and mental health, but also with beneficial effects on various cognitive and brain functions. This study investigated the effects of a motor and coordination oriented exercise intervention on academic achievements, attention/concentration ability, and on different facets of…

Tabullo, Ángel Javier; Shalom, Diego; Sevilla, Yamila; Gattei, Carolina Andrea; París, Luis; Wainselboim, Alejandro – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Electrophysiology studies have identified two event-related potentials that are modulated by predictive processes during language comprehension: the N400 and a frontal positivity. The N400 is smaller when words are presented within highly restrictive sentences, indicating reduced lexical retrieval costs. Violations of strong predictions generate…

Mota, Natália B.; Callipo, Renata; Leite, Lígia; Torres, Ana R.; Weissheimer, Janaína; Bunge, Silvia A.; Copelli, Mauro; Ribeiro, Sidarta – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Formal thought organization obtained from free speech, a key feature for psychiatric evaluations, has been poorly investigated during typical development. Computational tools such as speech graph connectedness (LSC) currently allow for an accurate quantification in naturalistic settings. LSC's typical development is better predicted by years of…

Eisen, Sierra; Lillard, Angeline S. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
In three studies, we examined children's geography learning from a physical puzzle and an app designed to mimic the puzzle. In Study 1, 5- and 6-year-olds were taught Australia's states by an experimenter using a puzzle or were taught by an app. Children learned significantly more states from instruction with the puzzle than when they used the app…

Hermida, Maria Julia; Segretin, Maria Soledad; Shalom, Diego Edgar; Lopez-Rosenfeld, Matías; Abril, Marcelo Claudio; Lipina, Sebastián Javier; Sigman, Mariano – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Extreme poverty all over the world is concentrated in rural settings. However, studies about cognition in low socioeconomic status (SES) children are for the most part conducted in urban populations. This paper investigates, in a poor rural sample, what are the individual and socioenvironmental variables that make the difference in performance in…

Hawes, Zachary; Cain, Michelle; Jones, Shelly; Thomson, Nicole; Bailey, Cristol; Seo, Jisoo; Caswell, Beverly; Moss, Joan – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
The purpose of the current pilot study was to examine the effects of a teacher-designed and teacher-led numerical board game intervention. Fifty-four 4- to 6-year-olds were randomly assigned to either the number board game intervention or an active control group. Relative to the control group, children who received the number game intervention…

Wimmer, Sigrid; Paechter, Manuela; Lackner, Helmut K.; Papousek, Ilona – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Exams often trigger avoidance motivation and a tendency to withdraw; instead, an approach-oriented motivational state would be more desirable, since this encourages an invigorated and persistent approach to tasks. This study investigated the role of academic self-concept on the activation of relative approach versus avoidance motivation during the…

Wang, Jiahui; Antonenko, Pavlo; Keil, Andreas; Dawson, Kara – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Many online videos feature an instructor on the screen to improve learners' engagement; however, the influence of this design on learners' cognitive load is underexplored. This study investigates the effects of instructor presence on learners' processing of information using both subjective and psychophysiological measures of cognitive load. Sixty…

Howard-Jones, Paul; Jay, Tim; Galeano, Laura – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
This pilot study investigated how a brief professional development session on the science of learning impacted teachers' attributions of usefulness to both scientific and performative concepts about teaching. Ratings were collected from teachers attending five events across the United Kingdom (N = 585) before and after receiving a 90-min training…

Bartolucci, Marco; Batini, Federico – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Listening to stories and brain processing of narrative material activates many areas devoted not only to the linguistic processing. In this sense, it could be hypothesized that if this activity would be integrated within the school curricula, it could bring benefits in terms of understanding the text as well as in basic essential cognitive…

Zhang, Zhicong; Zhou, Jiaxian – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Effects of cuteness-perception on individual cognition, emotion, behavior have significant implications for moral education. On the one hand, cuteness perception will make individuals think that moral violations are more serious and lead to tougher moral judgments; on the other hand, cuteness perception can activate moral emotions such as…

Donolato, Enrica; Toffalini, Enrico; Giofrè, David; Caviola, Sara; Mammarella, Irene C. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Previous research examined the influence of math anxiety (MA) on performance in mathematics, but few studies compared the contribution of MA to other forms of anxiety, such as test and general anxiety (GA). Unlike MA, ego-resiliency promotes the management of challenges, and has been positively associated with mathematics performance. In this…

Butera, Christiana; Ring, Priscilla; Sideris, John; Jayashankar, Aditya; Kilroy, Emily; Harrison, Laura; Cermak, Sharon; Aziz-Zadeh, Lisa – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Difficulty processing sensory information may impede progress in school for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We explore the relationship between sensory processing and school performance in 26 high-functioning youths with ASD and 26 controls (age 8-14) using measures of sensory, social, cognitive, and academic functioning. In the ASD…

Massonnié, Jessica; Frasseto, Philippe; Mareschal, Denis; Kirkham, Natasha Z. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Moving the field of Mind, Brain, and Education forward requires researchers and educators to reframe the boundaries of their own discipline in order to create knowledge that is both scientifically based, and of practical relevance for education. We believe that this could be done by co-constructing research projects "from the start." We…

Churches, Richard; Dommett, Eleanor J.; Devonshire, Ian M.; Hall, Robin; Higgins, Steve; Korin, Astrid – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
We initiated and structured a single program that supervised teachers, some with neuroscience or psychology degrees, to collaborate and explore the effects of science of learning-translated pedagogy. This article reports on the 34 findings from teacher-led randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and replications. Teachers designed trials, looking at…
