“By giving students the ability to create their own vehicles, test their skills, and refine their product, we provide hands-on learning opportunities that let students explore and discover,” said Shai Goitein, CEO and Founder of POWERUP Toys.
A new study suggests an imbalance of functioning in attention-related brain systems may help forecast the course of teen depression.
Researchers discovered faulty connections between frontal and insular brain networks were associated with development of severe depression among teens. Moreover, researchers discovered the abnormal connection patterns predicted increased depressive symptoms two weeks later.
Proper coordination of frontoinsular brain networks help us regulate our attention between external goals and self-focused or emotional thinking.
A new U.K. analysis finds that cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can help improve the mental health of children and young people with long-term physical conditions, including inflammatory bowel disease, chronic pain and epilepsy.
A new international study discovered reduced brain activity and a weaker connection between brain regions among teenage girls with problematic social behavior. Investigators believe faulty neural wiring is a possible explanation for social deficits, including problems with emotion regulation.
The study, led by University of Zurich researchers, provides an explanation for why some girls have trouble controlling their emotions. Moreover, the neurobiological explanation is encouraging as it suggests indications for possible therapy approaches.
A new Spanish study adds to the growing body of evidence suggesting that air pollution exposure in early childhood may be linked to cognitive dysfunction.
Researchers from Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) discovered that children who were exposed to small particulate matter in the womb and during the first years of life were at greater risk of poorer working memory (link appeared in boys only) and reduced executive attention (in both boys and girls).
A new study shows that our doubts about what we know pique our curiosity and can motivate us to learn more.
Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley say the findings challenge a popular belief that curiosity in general is the prime driver of learning. They also give new meaning to the Montessori approach to learning readiness, which encourages children to follow their own natural inquisitiveness.
