Learning to See Data

By Benedict Carey

Perceptual learning is active. Our eyes (or other senses) are searching for the right clues.... In a recent experiment... half the students practiced on a computer module that showed short videos from real surgeries and had to decide quickly which stage of the surgery was pictured... On a final exam testing their knowledge of the procedure, the perceptual-learning group trounced their equally experienced peers, scoring four times higher. Their instincts were much sharper.

Learning without remembering: Brain lab goes to school

By Peter Aldhous

Judging from the views of his students, the approach has made a promising start. "It's like learning how to extract what is key," says 18-year-old Wynn Haimer. "You're able to see patterns, and see that all of these problems are one and the same."

Brain Calisthenics for Abstract Ideas

By Benedit Carey

Now, a small group of cognitive scientists is arguing that schools and students could take far more advantage of this same bottom-up ability, called perceptual learning. The brain is a pattern-recognition machine, after all, and when focused properly, it can quickly deepen a person’s grasp of a principle, new studies suggest.
