Connectome: How the brain's wiring makes us who we are

Rising star in the field of neuroscience Sebastian Seung argues that our identity lies not in our genes but in the connections between our brain cells -- and he describes the monumental task of mapping these "connectomes", neuron by neuron, synapse by synapse.

Neuroscience & the Classroom

Neuroscience & the Classroom | Mind, Brain, and Teaching | Scoop.it

Insights drawn from neuroscience not only provide educators with a scientific basis for understanding some of the best practices in teaching, but also offer a new lens through which to look at the problems teachers grapple with every day. By gaining insights into how the brain works—and how students actually learn—teachers will be able to create their own solutions to the classroom challenges they face and improve their practice

Main Page - Research Methods in Psychology

Main Page - Research Methods in Psychology | Mind, Brain, and Teaching | Scoop.it

This wiki is based on the textbook Research Methods and Statistics in Psychology: Success in Your Psychology Degree, by Jeremy Miles, and originally published by Learning Matters. The book is designed to help people in the first year of a psychology degree in the UK (it might help others, but I don't know as much about what they cover).

Now it's republished as a Wiki, and anyone can edit it - it becomes a collaborative attempt to write a textbook. No book is perfect, and everyone thinks that they can do something better. Be bold, if you want to change something, or add something, go ahead.

The book itself had an introduction as well, which was primarily about how to study.

Cognitive Psychology: Topics and Resources, Dr. Frank Hassebrock | Mind, Brain, and Teaching | Scoop.it

Web Resources for Cognitive Psychology

I have listed several web links for each of the major cognitive psychology topics we will cover this semester. The purpose of this webpage is to supplement the course through the provision of www links that students can explore, investigate, and analyze. These links vary greatly in the type of information presented. Some sites provide information of direct relevance to specific cognitive concepts and research that we will cover in class; other sites represent applications of cognitive psychology to other academic areas and "real world" uses (e.g., advertising, sports, medicine, art, literature, and education).

The Human Connectome Project

Navigate the brain in a way that was never before possible; fly through major brain pathways, compare essential circuits, zoom into a region to explore the cells that comprise it, and the functions that depend on it.

The Human Connectome Project aims to provide an unparalleled compilation of neural data, an interface to graphically navigate this data and the opportunity to achieve never before realized conclusions about the living human brain.

What do you love?

 

A new Google interface, called "What Do You Love?" brings together previews of various specialized Google searches all in one place.

Just go to What do you Love, type in something that you love—

monkeys, Sonic drive in, polka dots, Diet Coke—and you'll find tons of results!

Everything from where to find it, how to say it in other languages,

videos to watch about it, where to find books and blogs about it,

see pictures of it, and much, much more!

This would be great to use with students when doing research!

What a great way to find information quickly and easily in a fun format!

A Neurologist Makes the Case for Teaching Teachers About the Brain

A Neurologist Makes the Case for Teaching Teachers About the Brain | Mind, Brain, and Teaching | Scoop.it

Should teachers be required to learn about the brain, to understand how neuroscience reseach has implications for teaching?

This post looks at how neuroscience knowledge strengthens a teachers ability to "help all children build their brain potential." Did you know that new research on the brains' neuroplasticity shows that educators may "help students literally change their brains - and intelligence."

Learn about what triggers student behaviors, how to bring neuroscience into education, why frontloading is more critical than ever, and find a wealth of resourcesto help you learn more about the neuroscience of learning as well as resources for your students to learn more about the brain.

And if you are looking for a free online course on Neuroscience and the Classroom: Making Connections check out this course from Annenberg Learner: http://www.learner.org/courses/neuroscience/.
