Making Memory May Mean Modeling and Remodeling - Dana Foundation

A fascinating look at how memory is used in thinking about the future. You can make some great links to how education can use the research that is coming out of brain science to make learning more meaningful.

For example, memories are most vivid when there is a surprise, either in the context or the environment. Furthermore, memories are most vivid when the prediction side of the brain is the most off from the actual outcome. Any good teacher would tell you this is the hook in their lesson plan.
