Editor’s note: The neuroscience equivalent of the Human Genome Project is underway . . .
Editor’s note: A look at how neuroscience is developing and what is providing us in terms of helping us to quite literally picture the mind.
Editor’s note: Wanting to learn and keeping your brain active as you get older will help cognitive function later in life, according to this research.
Editor’s note: Research-backed list which makes you wonder why music does not feature in many people’s working lives.
Editor’s note: Overlearning something helps reduce the workload on the brain which means you can use the spare resources on enhancing your performance.
Editor’s note: A look at the arguments raised in the book: Brainwashed: The Seductive Appeal of Mindless Neuroscience.
Editor’s note: The elearning coach reviews three books on neuroscience and cognition.
Editor’s note: A look at the neural networks at play in the creative process. A must read if you are interested in creativity.
Editor’s note: The idea of right brain-left brain personalities is flawed: it’s far better to talk about people’s creativity or their analytical skills separately, rather than in opposition—especially since many people have plenty of both.
Editor’s note: This piece gets under the ‘neuroscience noise’ and looks at what brain science is really telling us about how the brain works. Thanks to @clairewalshlcp for sharing.
Editor’s note: Cambridge neuroscientist Daniel Bor, author of The Ravenous Brain: How the New Science of Consciousness Explains Our Insatiable Search for Meaning looks at how pattern-recognition is essential to consciousness and our entire experience of life.
Editor’s note: Will L&D be following in the tracks of marketing by taking scientific methodologies and making them their own? L&D could learn from marketing on this.
Editor’s note: Why, in a world full of ideas to discover, develop, and discuss, do people spend the majority of their time talking about themselves?
Editor’s note: A good article on neurohype and neuroskepticism and the need to find a place in between.
Editor’s note: fascinating research into the neuroscience behind idea sharing. The results make for interesting reading: “The spread of ideas depends on the messenger’s social-cognitive abilities, affect, and motivations, and less on IQ-type intelligence. None of the stages involved in social influence recruited brain regions typically associated with higher-level abstract reasoning and executive functioning (the frontal-parietal brain network).”
