Brain science to help teachers get into kids' heads - science-in-society - 16 September... - 27 views

  • "In medicine, we have an excellent system in place to go from basic research to clinical practice, while in neuroscience we have the basic understanding of how the brain learns but still need to figure out how to translate this into the classroom," says Manfred Spitzer of the University of Ulm in Germany, one of the conference organisers. With brain imaging and, increasingly, genetic studies now complementing psychology research, a host of new findings could inform teachers about the conditions in which our brains can be primed to learn best.

  • I recorded the audio from the session and will try to publish that soon in my podcast channel. The Keynote slide deck is available on SlideShare, although we only got through half the 91 slides during the 1.5 hour videoconference.

Memristor minds: The future of artificial intelligence - tech - 08 July 2009 - New Scie... - 1 views

  • And he found something missing: a fourth basic circuit element besides the standard trio of resistor, capacitor and inductor. Chua dubbed it the "memristor". The only problem was that as far as Chua or anyone else could see, memristors did not actually exist.

El sharismo de Isaac Mao | Blog Nodos Ele - 0 views

  • La capacidad de compartir con nuestros estudiantes a partir del respeto a su individualidad va más allá de esa interpretación chata de la dimensión afectiva del aprendizaje tan de moda. Es a partir del respeto al individuo, a su decisión libre de interactuar o no, y de poner en juego estratégicamente su inteligencia conectiva como es posible entender una enseñanza libre de falsos ídolos y que responda a los fundamentos de la naturaleza humana.

  • How will you obtain a higher education? Some major headlines in 2009 already play on the fears about how to pay for a higher education. Press releases from colleges want to quell those fears about monies for college, and politicians have introduced legislation to make education more affordable.

  • So please enjoy this interview with Isaac!

  • When I first read Isaac’s gentle “manifesto” about Sharism I was instantly pulled into to the clarity and intent of his writing. I thought here is a man contemplating the enormous cultural and technological development that he himself is thriving inside of and he has perspective and keen insight. I know that Stuart Kauffman is looking for a new global ethic and right in front of us is a powerful new tool and sensibility that is emerging.

  • BrainMaps.org is an interactive multiresolution next-generation brain atlas that is based on over 20 million megapixels of sub-micron resolution, annotated, scanned images of serial sections of both primate and non-primate brains and that is integrated with a high-speed database for querying and retrieving data about brain structure and function over the internet. Currently featured are complete brain atlas datasets for various species, including Macaca mulatta, Chlorocebus aethiops, Felis catus, Mus musculus, Rattus norvegicus, and Tyto alba.

Face to Face: Alan Kay Still Waiting for the Revolution | Scholastic.com - 7 views

  • Since inventing much of the technology behind personal computing in the late 1960s, Alan Kay has dedicated his work to developing better learning environments for children. Now a senior researcher at HP and the president of Viewpoints Research Institute, Kay is launching Squeak, a multimedia authoring tool that allows children to construct dynamic simulations of real-world phenomena. We spoke with him about the unfulfilled promise of technology in schools—and about what computers have in common with pianos.

Study Shows How The Brain Pays Attention; Neural Circuits That Control Eye Movements Pl... - 2 views

  • "Without regulating your attention, you would orient to everything that appears and moves. An organism that couldn't filter anything just wouldn't work. It would be in a state of constant distraction," said Moore. "This work shows that, whether we are moving our eyes or not, the networks that control eye movements may be a source of that filtering."

港媒:三鹿案捉放曹 田文华精神抖擞藏许多玄机 - 0 views

  •      三鹿毒奶粉案一场轰轰烈烈的审判,变成了一宗政治闹剧。当局对主要犯罪人重罪轻罚、高举轻放,对幕后保护伞放纵不究,举国为之哗然,当局依法治国的招牌,又蒙上一层厚厚的污垢,三十多万受害的结石宝宝欲哭无泪。
  •     今次毒奶粉事件,影响极为恶劣,三十多万婴儿受害,比得上一场南京大屠杀,更可悲的是当中许多还留下后遗症,一辈子生不如死。如此惨烈的生命浩劫,那些刽子手们却可逃脱一死,令人悲愤莫名。
  •     今次审判安排在岁末年初进行,内大有文章。审判完便是内地元旦三天假期,很多记者、编辑放假,读者观众忙于休閒,当局精挑细选这样的时间,明显是不想引人注意,避免媒体跟进调查,令事件大事化小。

  •     总之,三鹿毒奶粉案的审判,还有太多的疑团未解,还有企图掩盖製造、销售毒奶粉罪证的官员尚未到案。当局却草草调查,匆匆开审,这难道不是典型的葫芦僧判糊涂案?

Exercise and your brain: Why working out may help memory: Scientific American Blog - 10 views

  • Glucose metabolism naturally slows with age, and memory begins to decline in our 30s, says co-author Scott Small, an associate professor of neurology at Columbia University Medical Center in New York. The new study suggests a possible association between the two, because elevated blood sugar appears to damage the dentate gyrus, Small says.

  • have shown that both calorie restriction and intermittent fasting along with vitamin and mineral intake, increase resistance to disease, extend lifespan, and stimulate production of neurons from stem cells.
  • Physical exercise may also have beneficial effects on neuron regeneration by stimulating regeneration of brain and muscle cells via activation of stress proteins and the production of growth factors. But again, additional research suggests that not all exercise is equal. Interestingly, some researchers found that exercise considered drudgery was not beneficial in neuronal regeneration, but physical activity that was engaged in purely for fun, even if equal time was spent and equal calories were burned, resulted in neuronal regeneration.

In class, anytime -- baltimoresun.com - 0 views

  • Green's university, Coppin State, is one of a few hundred across the country that's using the lecture-archiving system called Tegrity. In Maryland, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Salisbury University and the Community College of Baltimore County are using it, too. School officials say the technology is not only helping students stay on pace with course work, it's taking away a prime reason for dropping out.
