- If we want to learn from our mistakes, we have to give ourselves an opportunity to do so, according to new research.
- A South Korean startup has developed a Braille smartwatch that allows users to read or learn to read Braille.
- Researchers found that children are selective when they imitate and when they decide to be more creative.
- When we feel uncertain, our brains predict the need to learn quickly and will switch modes in order to quickly link two things together.
- We learn best when our brains can link new words from a foreign language with other sensory perceptions, especially gestures.
- Distinct follow-through movements activate specific memories and so they help you learn — and learn faster — a new motor memory skill.
Is Motivation Found In The Posterior Cingulate Cortex? This Brain Region Keeps You Going When Learning Is ToughDuke researchers discovered that the posterior cingulate cortex is necessary to monitor your performance and maintain your motivation when you are learning, particularly when you are most challenged.
- A new study provides the first evidence that babies do indeed learn by imitation — the brain processes involved were only proven in adults until recently.
- Obesity has been linked to age-related illness, such as Alzheimer's before, but how? Researchers have discovered that it could have something to do with a protein that metabolizes fat and aids in memory and learning.
- Babies exposed to three syllable sounds while still in the womb were able to remember them after birth, showing that language learning begins long before day one.
- Nuclear testing from the 1960s helps scientist determine whether adult brains generate new neurons.
- Research suggests the surprising benefits of video games in teaching children valuable skills like problem solving and leadership.
