How To Use Brain Science To Be Your Best Self In 2017

How To Use Brain Science To Be Your Best Self In 2017 | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

Resolutions are often an exercise in wishful thinking. People rarely keep them, mostly because they’re vague about their goals and don’t have a plan for following through. But that isn't the only thing that may weaken resolve or slow progress toward a goal. Failing to understand some practical brain science can just as quickly do you in.


Neuroscience has shown us this year that we may actually have everything we need to stay focused, be more creative, remember more, and make better decisions—just as long as we can work a bit more with our brains, not against them. Here are a few things we learned that can take you closer toward being your best self in 2017.

What does neurology tell us about education? This post looks at 25 discoveries over the last 25 years. Some may be new to you and remember this is a field that is changing rapidly.

Below are a few of the discoveries that are covered.

* Brain plasticity - "...the brain changes constantly as a result of learning, and remains ‘plastic’ throughout life."

* "The brain’s response to reward is influenced by expectations and uncertainty."

* "Learning involves both focused attention and peripheral attention."

For more information on these discoveries and 22 additional click through to the post. You might want to check out the 3D interactive brain that explores learning strategies. It is located at http://www.opencolleges.edu.au/informed/learning-strategies/

Some of them:

- Brain plasticity

- The discovery of mirror neurons

- Both nature and nurture affect the learning brain

- Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences- The brain’s response to reward is influenced by expectations and uncertainty- The brain has mechanisms for self-regulation- Education is a powerful form of cognitive enhancement- Neuroscience informs adaptive learning technology- Dyslexia and other learning disorders- Social and emotional intelligence- The brain thrives on variety- Memorization and learning are not the same thing- Metacognition enhances learning- The brain is a parallel processor.- “Cells that fire together wire together.”etc
