cognitive and cultural embeddedness special research report Photo by
Our cultural choices and traditions (language, religion, customs and practices, history and collective memory, the value we ascribe to our heritage, public spaces and specific landscapes) define who “we” are.

7/5/2010 Open Thread | Gene Expression | Discover Magazine
I think it is probably best to have a weekly open thread for links and what not of interest. So I’ll just do this every week (in fact, I’m going to schedule a bunch ahead), and leave links or pointers. I suppose people could ask questions too, as a lot of my blog posts which are more didactic emerge through reader feedback (often via email).

Dr Michael Kindler's review of "Learning from one another"
has offered a  review of the teachers manual "Learning from one another" (LFOA). What follows is an analysis of his review. Words are important. At the risk of sounding trivial, words are used by the mind to evoke an imagery built through their structures and the links they establish with already existing knowledge we have acquired along the way. First and foremost they give meaning to what we hear or read because of their power to create a landscape in our minds.

The Effects of an Engaged Lifestyle on Cognitive Vitality: A Field ...
Experimental studies on cognitive training have suggested that the effects of experience are narrow in augmenting or maintaining cognitive abilities, while correlational studies report a wide range of benefits of an engaged lifestyle, including increased longevity, resistance to dementia, and enhanced cognitive flexibility. The latter class of evidence is ambiguous because it is possible that it is simply the case that those with relatively better cognitive vitality seek out and maintain a wider range of activities. We report data from a field experiment in which older adults were randomly assigned to participate in a program ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
