      • What Learning Looks Like: Creating A Well-Tuned Orchestra In Your Head
        TDLC's Dr. John Iversen is featured on KPBS, where he discusses his five-year study on the brains of children who play music in the San Diego Youth Symphony's Community Opus after-school program. Dr. Iversen is just beginning to analyze his data, but early findings suggest playing music is linked to stronger language development!

      • Advances to brain-interface technology provide clearer insight into visual system
        CMUCarnegie Mellon University engineers and cognitive neuroscientists have demonstrated that a new high-density EEG can capture the brain's neural activity at a higher spatial resolution than ever before. TDLC investigators Drs. Michael Tarr and Marlene Behrmann participated in the study! More(Science Daily, 12/4/17) Click here to read the publication.

      • Isabel GauthierVisual intelligence is not the same as IQ
        A new study by TDLC's Dr. Isabel Gauthier and her team shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people’s visual ability and that these variations are not associated with individuals’ general intelligence, or IQ.

      • Spacing out instruction for more effective learning:
        Revisiting material after days and weeks helps us remember better

        This article discusses research on the spacing effect. It includes a study by TDLC's Drs. Mozer and Pashler (with colleagues) that shows that spacing out learning over time "has the potential to double retention over timescales relevant to school or college courses."
