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.

Neurobics - 0 views

  • Some specific types of sensory stimuli and activities, especially those that involve non-routine actions and thoughts, produce more of those chemicals that encourage growth of new dendrites and neurons in the brain. These are generally non-routine activities. Routines become so automatic that actions are done largely unconsciously (ever get up in the morning and walk to the bathroom before you're really conscious?). Such automated or unconscious actions require less activity in the brain, and exercise it less.

Technology Review: Detecting Brain Chemicals - 0 views

  • Sampling the brain: A device by the Mayo Clinic can analyze and detect neurotransmitters locally in the brain. Blue wires link an external monitor (circuit board) to gray connectors, which are in turn linked to neurotransmitter-sensing electrodes (not shown). The device is battery operated (the battery is shown connected to the circuit board) and can transmit the neurochemical information from the electrodes to a remote station for analysis.

Looking Inside the Human Brain - 0 views

  • What's really going on inside your head when you make a decision, make a mistake, or have a few drinks? In this segment, Ira and guests talk about new research involving the field of functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI. The technique allows researchers to monitor the blood flow through parts of the brain as it responds to stimuli, allowing researchers to monitor which parts of the brain are active and which are resting. Though the technique is being eagerly explored in a variety of fields, fMRI has received criticism from some brain experts as being the modern-day equivalent of phrenology. We'll hear about the technique, and what it can tell researchers about the inner workings of the human brain.
