Studies Showing How Thoughts And Memories Are Represented

I had to be offline for quite some days but thanks God, we are back and fresh to keep up with our readers, subscribers and fellow educators who happen to read Education & Teach.

Donald Clark, in his post Mind Reading and Learning takes issue with brain study and refers to what level the investigations on this filed are now. We really like his vision of the future of such investigations when he writes:

    Last year the University of California in Berkeley unveiled their realtime scanner in Nature,. This was put through its paces. People were asked to look at thousands of different images of people, animals, maps and so on. these were analysed, stored and the data used by a computer to correctly predict what someone was looking at JUST FROM THE SCAN. Mindblowing!

    As brain scans start to uncover how memories are encoded, stored and recalled, we can look forward to significant advances in improving learning. Many of these improvements, such as sleep, chunking, visualisation and spaced practice could be implemented from what we already know in standard memory theory. What’s exciting about scan research is the possibility of really locating and identifying the physical and chemical pathways. This in turn could lead to massive increases in learning efficacy, increasing plasticity, faster recovery from injury and limiting the effects of dementia and other diseases.
