Editor’s note: This article shows the range and growth of ‘brain health’ initiatives. Worth keeping an eye on how these technologies develop.
Editor’s note: There is an interesting ‘debate’ going on amongst researchers as to whether speaking two languages is good for your cognitive powers. The debate unearths some key areas for consideration for L&D professionals when it comes to taking scientific research at face value – I’m thinking neuroscience in particular. It seems that positive research findings get more airwaves than negative ones which has big implications for what we consider to be the ‘truth’.

HR and L&D professionals looking for real life examples of how #neuroscience is being used in the workplace will have to look very hard. There is a dearth of formal, practical application at the moment. This is despite the regular stream of #research and articles about latest neuroscience findings and the insights it offers HR […]
Editor’s note: This is an interesting read which shows that neuroscience research suffers from a low number of people taking part in studies. This in turn affects the statistical validity of the research. That’s not to say the research is invalid, it is just worth understanding more about the efficacy of the research, especially as L&D starts to embrace neuroscience with open arms.
In an article for the Guardian, Kate Button, a research psychologist at the University of Bristol, says that the small size of #neuroscience studies undermines the reliability of the conclusions drawn from them. Button analysed 48 published papers that included data from 49 meta analyses and 730 primary studies and gave the research a statistical […]
