Research Interests

Our biochemistry laboratory closed in 1998, after 25 years of research on cell-cell communication, protein folding, cell membranes, and biosensors.  However, we have now turned our interests toward understanding how brain research can inform teaching. Building on our background in cell-cell communication, our experience with human learning and teaching at UCITE, and the increasing knowledge about the human brain, this work led to the publication of a book entitled The Art of Changing the Brain, in the fall of 2002. Thus although we no longer conduct laboratory research, we remain active in scholarship and publication.

According to our current model of the connection between brain function, human learning, and education, we believe that education can engage the learner's brain to the fullest extent when students follow a cycle of concrete experience with their subject, reflection on their experience and connecting it to their prior knowledge, generation of their own abstract hypotheses about their experience and testing their hypotheses through action, which produces a new sensory (concrete) experience.

研究兴趣

我们已在细胞间讯息传递、蛋白质折叠、细胞膜和生物传感器方面从事了25余年的研究,但在1998年,我们的生化实验室关闭了。现如今,我们已把兴趣点转向如何通过大脑研究改善教学。基于我们在细胞间讯息传递上所从事的研究,以及我们以UCITE为载体在人类学习和教学上所积累的经验,再加上我们对人脑的进一步探知,我们于2002年秋季出版了《改变大脑的艺术》一书。因此,尽管我们已不再从事实验室研究,但我们仍然热衷于学术研究和著书立说。

基于我们的大脑功能、人类学习与教育互联模型,我们认为,教育可以使学习者充分运用大脑的功能,即:在认识某个主体时,学生首先回想自己以前的相关经验并联系自己原有的知识,提出自己的假设,通过行动加以证实。这种循环模式会使学生产生一种新的感觉(具体)认识。 

Presentation: A brain-based model for human learning; application for educators

   演讲题目:基于大脑的人类学习模型——奉献给教育工作者

This session will review our growing knowledge about the brain and learning, in terms that are understandable by all educators at all levels, from pre-school to professional school and graduate school. I will present actual neuroscience experiments, and show how those experiments suggest an accessible theory for using that information to enhance learning. The presentation will consist of two sections: 1) fundamental ideas for all pedagogy, based on my first book The Art of Changing the Brain; and 2) special focus on cognitive growth as described in my recent second book, From Brain to Mind. The presentation will centre on stories of the author's real life experiences with students and teachers, over a 45-year time span. There will be a special emphasis on learning language, which is the core of cognitive maturation and personal growth. In addition, I will make specific suggestions about applying these ideas in formal schooling, as well as through experiential learning.

本次讲演将以各级别的教育工作者都能接受的语言回顾与大脑和学习有关的知识,从学前教育工作者到职业院校、研究生院校的教育工作者。我将介绍一些神经科学实验,并说明这些实验为我们提供了哪些信息,可以用于改善学习成果。本次讲座将包括两部分:1)基于我的第一本著作《改变大脑的艺术》,讲述适用于所有教学的基本思想;2)以我最近出版的第二本著作《从大脑到心灵》为基础,重点关注认知的发展。本次讲座将以演讲人45年来与学生和教师们所经历的真实事件为中心,特别关注语言学习——语言学习是认知成熟和个人成长的核心。此外,我还会对把这些思想应用于正规的学校教育和体验式学习提出几点具体建议。
