Since posting my previous piece (When Learning Hurts – Toxic Learning) earlier this week, another blog focused on medical neuroscience posted a great overview of math anxiety called “Brain Markers of Math Anxiety“. The post refers to a study “The Neurodevelopmental Basis of Math Anxiety” that has identified the neural correlates of math anxiety for […]

What and how students learn can have toxic effects on how well they learn thereafter. It’s vitally important that educators understand this.
Re: Stanford School of Medicine – March 21, 2012 – Imaging study reveals differences in brain function for children with math anxiety This study is important reading for anyone interested in understanding the emergence of neuroscience in support of unhealthy learning, maladaptive schema, and Mind-Shame. Absent from the article are two critical distinctions: 1) Math Anxiety is a form […]
Re: http://www.sharpbrains.com/blog/2012/01/25/when-1-1-5-dyscalculia-and-working-memory/ Are the neurophysical correlates of working memory deficits the result of biologically ordained structural/processing insufficiencies (maladaptive bio-development) (1) or are the neuro-physiological correlates of working memory deficits the result of a lack of neurophysical exercise/activity due to learned maladaptive processing schema? For a related example, a recent study of dyslexia moved us closer to […]
