Monitoring Dopamine Release During Reward Learning
In the process of learning, we “sometimes make more deliberative choices, and sometimes make more visceral ones,” says Paul Phillips. These are “semantic terms we intuitively know,” and scientists have become well-versed in creating tasks for animals and humans that demonstrate how these different kinds of lea
Imaging the Human Striatum and its Modulation by Dopamine
Researchers have known for some time that the neurotransmitter dopamine is centrally involved in learning and working memory, Roshan Cools tells us, and that dopamine-responsive circuits connect these parts of the human brain to other structures like the striatum, which also helps orchestrate motor control. Cools has been inves
Buddhism and Shinto in Japan
This a brief but informative description of the Japanese religion, Buddhism. It is short, concise and colorful but not too much detail. It would be good for general study.
Causes of the Civil War: America Divided (3:54)
America is at the brink of a Civil War as cotton spreads west and threatens to expand slavery into new territories due to the desire for new land to plant cotton. The invention of the cotton gin makes cotton a more profitable crop and cotton takes a lot of land as it exhausts the soil. This four minute video also explains some of the major events that caused the rift that eventually became the Civil War with South Carolina leaving the union. A good overview.

Interviewed by host Alan Butler, Mark Thornton discusses a wide variety of timely topics.
Science Children's attitudes I am starting a research study on children's attitudes towards science at primary school. I will be looking for information on Key Stages 1 and 2. Does gender, age, parents, types of science being learnt have an affect on their attitudes? Your help on finding some websites or journal articles would be much appreciated. Thank you.
This briefing paper is number 16 in a series, which are available from the Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) website (www.tlrp.org). It provides an account of the information technology infrastructure which supports the research community served by the TLRP. The paper discusses the rationale and benefits of three types of online tools; a Digital Repository for project publications and other resources, a collaborative Virtual Research Environment (VRE), and Dissemination Tools for t
Following a previous research review (Deakin Crick et al 2004) which took as its focus international evidence relating to the provision of citizenship in schools, this review is an in-depth synthesis of thirteen studies which address a range of types of citizenship education and learning processes. While explicitly aware of the complexities of the relationship between one subject and general measures of pupil progress, the authors clearly conclude that the research evidence demonstrates that Cit
This resource presents the headline findings from the child survey 2007, part of the ‘Taking Part: England’s Survey of Culture, Leisure and Sport’ commissioned by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). The child survey looks at how children spend their ‘out-of-school’ time to ascertain the types of cultural, leisure and sporting activities undertaken by young people.
This resource from the National Association for Language Development in the Curriculum (NALDIC) ITTSEAL features session notes for ITE educators to accompany the Teachers TV programme KS3/4 English Teaching Talking 1. The programme shows Year 7 EAL pupils practicing informal and formal types of English as they move from discussion and drafting to writing and performing. It can support secondary trainees to understand that pupils learning EAL will need specific development of their spoken languag
This resource appeared in November 2006 in Practical Research for Education, the NFER publication for teachers. It is a reprint of a 2005 article from a new Zealand Journal Research Information for Teachers. This study was carried out in New Zealand with Year 11, 12 and 13 students. The aim was to collect student views of their experiences of research (identifying, interpreting and analysing information on their own or in a group) in different subjects and different types of courses.
