9 Ways Neuroscience Has Changed The Classroom - 1 views

  •  
    This could be addition to Elanur's "All in the mind?" post. There is often a big divide between what happens in the laboratory and the way laboratory findings are practically applied. The relationship between neuroscience research and education is no exception. While there are numerous educational products that claim to be based on neuroscience research (often quite dubiously so), the real impact of brain-based research on education has been much more subtle.

How to use experts when not to - 3 views

  •  
    When decisions with important consequences involved, people ask for expert opinion let it be a hotel booking (trip advisor, booking...) or purchasing a book (amazon recommends, kitapyurdu...). If the stakes are high, then it becomes obligatory to go and ask for expert opinion. However this becomes a problem if people rely on experts as if they are getting parental advice. People become addicted to experts because of its certainity, assuredness and definitiveness. In a study, a group of adults' brains' MRI scans when they are listening to experts showed that the independent part of their decision making part of their brains switches off while they are listening. This listening becomes unquestionnable and they use these opinions without distinguishing as right or wrong. Considering the doctors who misdiagnose 4 out of 10, not questionning is an important issue. As a result the role of the expert should change because they are affected by social norms, cultural norms and everything. So their judgements may differ. Think about companies who try to sell their products and include experts in the process. Toothpaste, washing detergents etc. are exagerated. Although they are experts, they have assumptions which may have flaws. People should question and become skeptical about experts. People should not blindly accept or listen, rather they should open their eyes wide open, face the world, use experts for certain things but be aware of their limitations and also their own.

Brain Scans Forecast Math Skills - 0 views

  •  
    This study conducted in Standford University School of Medicine reveals that brain scans from 8-year-old children can predict gains in their mathematical ability over the next six years. That is a great development to learn students' math ability and provide proper type and level of education accordingly.

Vilayanur Ramachandran: The neurons that shaped civilization - 1 views

  •  
    One of the living science legends, Ramachandran, who is well known for his studies in neuroscience, talks about the influence of 'mirror neurons' in our lives. This video has some implications for complex social learning and for interconnectedness among people happening as a result of our interacting brains.
  •  
    and so many connections to cultural learning. I am curious to read more about his work, like if there is any research on the developmental stages of humans and the development of mirror neurons over the years.

Genes to Cognition - 1 views

  •  
    Hi all, "Genes to Cognition (G2C) Online is about modern neuroscience. It focuses on cognitive disorders, cognitive processes, and research approaches." What makes this website interesting is its dynamic networks that teach a lot about brain and neuroscience. What is more interesting about the website is 3-D Brain at the top right corner of the site. You can explore every single part of brain via that interactive model. Moreover, you can download it as a free application to your mobile phone through Google Play or App Store. Have fun with it! :)

    Yasin, I liked to much this application, it is too enjoyable, thank you :)

Applying the Neurosciences to Educational Research: Can Cognitive Neuroscience Bridge t... - 0 views

  •  
    Recent findings in Cognitive Neuroscience are likely to have important implications for educational theory and practice.It is critical to determine whether these research findings sufficient,in and of themselves, to have a veridical impact on curriculum and policy.The ways in which neuroscience research will impact the field of education is discussed and Gardner's theory of Multiple Intelligences is examined as a case study of the impact of neuroscience on educational practice. It is concluded that experts who are well versed in both neuroscience and educational research and theory are needed and that the development of an indepe ndent discipline, Educational Neuroscience, will best bridge the gap between the two fields.

  •  
    This paper can help us neuroscience week… It is too interesting New research indicates that glia cells are "the brain's supervisors." By regulating the synapses, they control the transfer of information between neurons, affecting how the brain processes information. This new finding could be critical for technologies based on brain networks, as well as provide a new avenue for research into disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and epilepsy.

Neuro Myths - 5 views

  •  
    You've surely heard the slogans: "Our educational games will give your brain a workout!" Or how about, "Give your students the cognitive muscles they need to build brain fitness." And then there's the program that "builds, enhances, and restores natural neural pathways to assist natural learning."

    Male and female brains are radically different? Though there may be subtle differences between male and female brains, there is absolutely no significant evidence to suggest that the genders learn or should be taught differently. This myth might stem from a misinterpretation of books such as The Essential Difference: Men, Women, and the Extreme Male Brain, which focused largely on patients with autism.
  •  
    Here is a new reserach about differences of male and female brains. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-25198063#FBM315349 But I think we need more of them to generalize and decide,since the brain is the most complex organ.
  •  
    Excellent!!! There are so many myths about education and learning teachers, parents, and children just believe without further inquiry. Take mathfobia for instance. Many girls at very early ages are trained to believe that that cannot do math. Their whole education and career are shaped accordingly. These beliefs and misconceptions are really dangerous, and I have to admit that teachers and professors held many of these myths and educate accordingly.
  •  
    I am really disappointed now :( I have been deceived by those myths :( I was very sure about some people are left-brained and some are right-brained or the ages 0-3 are more important than any other age for learning. It is quite interesting that I still do not want to believe that they are wrong :)
  •  
    Thank you for this source, there are some like Afranur that disappointed me:) I believe that people taking these myths and carrying them all along can be related with a crucial element of our education system: not emphasizing making critiques and reflections. Fortunately critical literacy is gaining importance, I hope its effects will be seen in our education system as well.
  •  
    Now I understand why I felt so incomplete while learning those MYTHS in training sessions :-) As a listener, I always questioned my brain's capacity and thought that only the genius can use their brain's full potential...:-((
  •  
    Fischer's ideas are really interesting. I was most confused about his idea of left-right brained.
