In a study that has been published in the latest issue of Consciousness and Cognition, Fadel Zeiden and his colleagues have shown that only four days of ‘mindfulness meditation’ training for only 20 minutes each day, improves not only mood and stress levels but also improves deep cognitive processing efficiency – core aspects of fluid intelligence such as working memory and sustained attention, as well as long term memory efficiency. 49 student volunteers completed the experiment. They were randomly assigned in equal numbers to two types of ‘interventions’: either a 4 day meditation training schedule, or listening for an equal ...
Collins, & Duguid, 1989; Greeno, 1989) by arguing that all knowledge is situated in activity bound to social, cultural and physical contexts (Greeno & Moore, 1993). A recent overview is offered by the collection of papers edited by Philip Robins and Murat Aydede Under this assumption, which requires an epistemological shift from empiricism, situativity theorists suggest a model of knowledge and learning that requires thinking on the fly rather than the storage and retrieval of conceptual knowledge. In essence, cognition cannot be separated from the context. Instead knowing exists, in situ , inseparable from context, activity, ...

which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Attempts to demonstrate the efficacy of interventions aimed at increasing physical activity (PA) have been mixed. Further, studies are seldom designed in a manner that facilitates the understanding of how or why a treatment is effective or ineffective and PA intervention designs should be guided by a heavier reliance upon behavioral theory. The use of a mediating variable framework offers a systematic methodological approach to testing the role of theory, and could also identify the effectiveness of ... market research, surveys and trends
Virtual Peirce : Mormon Metaphysics
Since the early 90’s at least the word “virtual” has become a buzz word. Since The Matrix it’s entered into common venacular and been applied to virtual worlds (video games like Halo or more social sites like Second Life) However it’s also had a fair use within philosophy as well. The idea goes back at least to Duns Scotus and was picked up by Charles Sanders Peirce in his mature philosophy. Typically “virtual” is used to apply to something non-actual but which acts as if it were actual. Peirce developed arguably the most useful sense of signs. While neglected through much of the ... market research, surveys and trends

Why consciousness?? | Ask MetaFilter
"I was taught that the human brain was the crowning glory of evolution so far, but I think it’s a very poor scheme for survival." I think Vonnegut's comment extends to the realm of consciousness in general. Why did evolution happen to move in the direction of conscious reflexion when there are surely simpler, more efficicent ways to aid an organism's survival? Expansive answers more than welcome... Evolution is not good at answering "why" questions, beyond solving a problem at hand, generation by generation, namely surviving and reproducing better than the other guy. We could have evolved with a heart on the right side ...

After perusing many of these papers, I discovered that not a whole ...
