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…

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…

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…

Cartwright, Kelly B.; Marshall, Timothy R.; Hatfield, Nathan A. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Executive function (EF) contributes significantly to reading comprehension across the lifespan. Emerging research indicates domain-specific assessments of EF are better suited for assessment and intervention in academic contexts. For example, "graphophonological-semantic cognitive flexibility" (GSF), the ability to flexibly switch…

Ramírez, Naja Ferjan; Kuhl, Patricia K. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Infancy (0-3 years) represents a unique time for language learning. Previous research shows that infants' second language (L2) learning advances rapidly in early education centers, through a research-based method and curriculum delivered by native-speaking language tutors. Here we test the potential of this method for broad application, through an…

Atteveldt, Nienke; Tijsma, Geertje; Janssen, Tieme; Kupper, Frank – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
We propose a Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) framework to improve the alignment between mind, brain, and education (MBE) research, the educational practice, and other societal stakeholders. RRI is an approach that has successfully been used in different research fields, but not yet in MBE research. After substantiating the need for, and…

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…

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…

Frankenberg, Sofia J. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
The Digital Maps Metaphor (DMM) is suggested as a transdisciplinary research tool to overcome some of the challenges that are potentially inherent in research projects that involve multiple aims, objectives, knowledge claims, and methodologies. Based on the understanding of metaphors as embodied concepts, it is argued that the DMM can be used to…

Sutter, Carolyn; Ontai, Lenna L.; Shilts, Mical K.; Lanoue, Louise; Allen, Lindsay H.; Townsend, Marilyn S. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
Previous research suggests obesity is negatively related to cognitive functioning and academic outcomes in addition to physical health. However, not much is known about this association in early childhood or potential physiological underpinnings. Biomarkers related to obesity have been associated with cognition, in particular the adipokine leptin,…

Schnaider-Levi, Lia; Mitnik, Inbal; Zafrani, Keren; Goldman, Zehavit; Lev-Ari, Shahar – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
An inquiry-based intervention has been found to have a positive effect on burnout and mental well-being parameters among teachers. The aim of the current study was to qualitatively evaluate the effect of the inquiry-based stress reduction (IBSR) meditation technique on the participants. Semi-structured interviews were conducted before and after…

Campeño-Martínez, Yoana; Santiago-Ramajo, Sandra; Navarro-Asencio, Enrique; Vergara-Moragues, Esperanza; Santiuste Bermejo, Victor – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
There has been increasing evidence in recent years of the need to adapt intervention programs to the specific needs of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The main goal of this research work was to study the efficacy of an educational intervention program to improve attention and reflexivity in school children with ADHD…

Ferjan Ramirez, Naja; Kuhl, Patricia – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
The first years of life represent a unique window of opportunity for foreign language learning. However, key questions are: How much and what kind of foreign language exposure is needed to ignite learning? We conducted a foreign language (English) intervention in four public Infant Education Centers in Madrid, Spain. Intervention children (N =…

In Ethiopia there is a severe shortage of child mental health professionals. Identification and intervention for young children's mental health problems is crucial to improve developmental trajectories and reduce the severity of emotional and behavioral disorders. Teachers can play an important role in early problem detection. This role is…

Batini, Federico; Bartolucci, Marco; De Carlo, Ermelinda – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
Dropping out of school can involve several internal and external factors. Regarding internal factors, learning difficulties and the experience of failure could trigger the withdrawal of commitment, rejection of and resistance to school, as well as a general perception of inadequacy. Here, we show the results of a series of interventions…
