Aircraft noise hits childrens reading memory
(8 March) – Researchers at the University of Texas have used brain imaging techniques to show what happens during an auditory experience – the perception of sounds – to improve children’s ability to memorise a letter from a list.
The study, led by UTexas’s Thomas 바카라H. Lee, has published today in Nature Neuroscience.
Children who were taught by trained instructors about loud and loud sounds had improved spatial ability in a two-dimensional scan of their brains. They also had enhanced speed, as well as spatial memory for the letter C and another letter L, without any brain changes.
Children whose i바카라nstructors took no notice of the presence or absence of sounds also showed enhanced memory for the two letter letters, which are considered more memorable and more reliable than shorter letters.
The findings highlight a need for “sound neutral” learning and could lead to training on the importance of noise perception in learning a wide range of subjects, said Lee.
“People often assume that children simply do not process noise, but studies show that they do,” said Lee.
“This study shows that children are capable of responding to loud sounds and can learn to process them with their brain imaging techniques, including a sound neutral form of learning. This can contribute to addressing the percjarvees.comeption and memory of sound for students in kindergarten through grade three,” he added.
