Lecture Luncheon 1: Cognitive and neuroscience of learning

  • TBD

Fall 2015 CMNS Lecturer’s Luncheon Journal Club
Cognitive and neuroscience of learning: What do cognitive and neuroscience tell us about how students learn?

We would like to invite you to a new iteration of our traditional CMNS Lectures’ Luncheon get-togethers. We would like to try a few meetings with a more traditional journal club on the topics of cognitive and neuroscience studies of learning.  There are some interesting papers about this.  We certainly won’t collectively become experts in these fields, but some of us thought it would be fun to read, discuss, and critique a few such articles.
 
The first meeting will be Thursday September 24 at noon.  Lunch will be provided.  Room TBA.
 
For this first meeting Joelle would like to present the following paper.
Just and Mason (2015)  Physics instruction induces changes in neural knowledge representation during successive stages of learning.
