6 year project to map how nerve connections develop in babies' brains while still in the womb and after birth

6 year project to map how nerve connections develop in babies' brains while still in the womb and after birth | Innovating Ideas in Education | Scoop.it
Scientists in the UK have launched a six-year project to create the first map of babies' brain in a critical period of growth in the womb and after birth.

 

By the time a baby takes its first breath many of the key pathways between nerves have already been made. And some of these will help determine how a baby thinks or sees the world, and may have a role to play in the development of conditions such as autism, scientists say.

 

But how this rich neural network assembles in the baby before birth is relatively unchartered territory.

 

Researchers from Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, King's College London, Imperial College and Oxford University aim to produce a dynamic wiring diagram of how the brain grows, at a level of detail that they say has been impossible until now.

 

They hope that by charting the journeys of bundles of nerves in the final three months of pregnancy, doctors will be able to understand more about how they can help in situations when this process goes wrong.

 

Prof David Edwards, director of the Centre for the Developing Brain, who is leading the research, says: "There is a distressing number of children in our society who grow up with problems because of things that happen to them around the time of birth or just before birth.

 

"It is very important to be able to scan babies before they are born, because we can capture a period when an awful lot is changing inside the brain, and it is a time when a great many of the things that might be going wrong do seem to be going wrong."

 

The study - known as the Developing Human Connectome Project - hopes to look at more than 1,500 babies, studying many aspects of their neurological development.

 

By examining the brains of babies while they are still growing in the womb, as well as those born prematurely and at full term, the scientists will try to define baselines of normal development and investigate how these may be affected by problems around birth.

 

Researchers aim to understand more about how the brain is affected by prematurity

And they plan to share their map with the wider research community.

Free Technology for Teachers: European Exploration - A Game for Learning About The Age of Discovery

Free Technology for Teachers: European Exploration - A Game for Learning About The Age of Discovery | Innovating Ideas in Education | Scoop.it

"Last week Glenn Wiebe http://ow.ly/foKFR ; published a list of iPad apps for history teachers. One item in that list that was new to me was European Exploration: The Age of Discovery http://ow.ly/foKC6   This free iPad app puts students in charge of exploring the "New World." In the game students are in charge of selecting explorers and ships to send out to the New World. Students have to manage the finances of their expeditions so that they don't run out of money before they can return home safely."

Not only are you able to increase your own intelligence orientation you can also explore other methods of learning which will certainly increase your neural network..  For example, if you are a visual learner, you could combine this logical-mathematical.  Just think:  you could see numbers and learn to add up and multiply much faster.  You could also store your bank account numbers in the visual area of the brain...................................Just think of how you can increase your brain power!!

The Current State of Mobile Learning in Education

The Current State of Mobile Learning in Education [USA focus]

How many students are projected to use mobile devices by the year 2016? How many are using devices while learning right now? How much is spent every year on textbooks?
We now know the staggering results of these and other questions thanks to a report from T-Mobile. They showcased a handful of schools who are deploying devices and connected learning as part of a recent (mid 2012) gathering in Washington, D.C.
After examining the infographic, the highlighted school initiatives, and the report from T-Mobile, it becomes clear that mobile learning is more than just the future. It’s the present.
There is a huge flux of students using devices to enhance learning right now.
