CEREBRO ADOLESCENTE: ¿Por qué a los adolescentes les cuesta concentrarse?

CEREBRO ADOLESCENTE: ¿Por qué a los adolescentes les cuesta concentrarse? | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

Una investigación realizada por científicos del Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience del University College London (UCL), del Reino Unido, sugiere que el hecho de que los adolescentes y los adultos jóvenes no se concentren tan bien como se espera no es culpa de ellos, sino consecuencia del propio desarrollo del cerebro.

El cerebro de los adolescentes se parece más al cerebro de los niños pequeños que al de los adultos maduros, explican los científicos en un comunicado emitido por el UCL: tiene mayor cantidad de materia gris, pero una eficiencia más baja.

Google X admits it’s working on a space elevator, teleportation, hoverboards | ExtremeTech | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
Google X, Google's secretive R&D laboratory, has confirmed that it was indeed working on a space elevator -- but sadly had to put the project on the back burner until humanity creates a building material that's strong enough. The same team at Google X has also investigated teleportation and hoverboards -- but again, at least for now, the secret sauce that would unlock the development of these technologies has eluded the Google geniuses.

The Power of Performance Assessments

The Power of Performance Assessments | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
Education is, of course, about so much more than filling minds with facts and figures. Teachers everywhere know that education is about developing minds for all kinds of future experiences: college, careers that will evolve over time, and community and civic life. So how can we know if we are developing minds -- and citizens -- for the future? The right kinds of assessment tell us far more than whether or not students are gaining knowledge.

Artists have unique brain structure

Artists have unique brain structure | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

Artists have structurally different brains compared with non-artists, a study has found.

Participants' brain scans revealed that artists had increased neural matter in areas relating to fine motor movements and visual imagery.

The research, published in NeuroImage, suggests that an artist's talent could be innate.

But training and environmental upbringing also play crucial roles in their ability, the authors report.

As in many areas of science, the exact interplay of nature and nurture remains unclear.

Lead author Rebecca Chamberlain from KU Leuven, Belgium, said she was interested in finding out how artists saw the world differently.

...

No 'right' side

Ellen Winner of Boston College, US, who was not involved with the study, commented that it was very interesting research.

She said it should help "put to rest the facile claims that artists use 'the right side of their brain' given that increased grey and white matter were found in the art group in both left and right structures of the brain".

"Only a prospective study could get at the question of innate structural brain differences that predispose people to become visual artists, and this kind of study has not been done as it would be very difficult and very expensive to carry out."
