Neurobehavioral plasticity : learning, development, and response to brain insults by Norman E Spear( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes a unique combination of research programs based on a striking variety of hypotheses and procedures directed toward understanding the sources and consequences of neurobehavioral plasticity. This remarkable attribute of the nervous system -- to be pliable and capable of being shaped or formed by natural or artificial sources toward adaptation or maladaptation -- is considered in terms of the neurochemical forces and neuroanatomical structure that has been found to be pivotal for this function. The impetus for this volume was a symposium held to honor Robert L. Isaacson for his scientific and pedagogical achievements as well as his contributions to behavioral neuroscience. Corresponding to his three major research interests, the book is divided into three sections as follows: * the first explores the relationship between the limbic system and behavior, with an emphasis on learning and memory; * the second considers -- through a wide range of approaches -- issues of plasticity in behavior and brain; and * the third deals with neural and chemical determinants of normal and abnormal behavior. This volume is not only a fitting tribute to Isaacson, but also an unusual collection of new evidence, procedures, and theories destined to have significant influence on behavioral neuroscience

Research on the characteristics of effective college teaching by Wilbert James McKeachie( Book )

4 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of differing teacher characteristics and of various student characteristics upon learning in college were measured by an instrument called the "criteria test," which contained subtests for measuring several levels of cognitive course outcomes as functions of interactions among methods of teaching, teacher personality, and student personality. Sixteen objectives of an undergraduate, general psychology course were to be used in this evaluation. Only nine of these, however, proved to be of significant importance after opinions were gathered from psychology instructors throughout the united states. Available data were also collected on some specific teaching methods and the achievement motivation, affiliation motivation, and anxiety of students who were exposed to them. In addition, personality measures were administered to teachers and students, and observations were made of students' and teachers' responses in the classroom. All of these factors were used in the makeup and administration of the "criteria test." After evaluating all test information the investigator found no single variable or combination of variables to be as powerful as intellectual ability in accounting for student achievement in college. Student ratings of teacher characteristics, too, were suggested as excellent measures for teacher effectiveness and, thus, student performance. Personality compatibilities were also significantly related to positive student attitudes and achievement. (Jh)
