Teachers can sanction procedures that allow students to articulate the thinking process which in turn may foster greater voluntary participation. Research has shown that metacognitive strategies allow students to link concepts together, resulting in deeper understanding of science concepts.

His lab explores why lost sensory cells don’t naturally regenerate in humans, even though they do in non-mammals such as birds and lizards. To better understand these delicate cells, the lab studies how they develop and shape the complex structures of the inner ear, and can later be damaged by environmental factors, including loud noises, antibiotics andchem
