Evaluating the effectiveness of a game-based rational number training - In-game metrics as learning indicators
TLDR
We evaluated training effects of a digital rational number game based on the measurement interpretation of rational numbers on conceptual rational number knowledge of fourth graders. Expand

Cognitive Mechanisms Underlying Directional and Non-directional Spatial-Numerical Associations across the Lifespan
There is accumulating evidence suggesting an association of numbers with physical space. However, the origin of such spatial-numerical associations (SNAs) is still debated. In the present study weExpand

Learning to modulate one's own brain activity: the effect of spontaneous mental strategies
Using neurofeedback (NF), individuals can learn to modulate their own brain activity, in most cases electroencephalographic (EEG) rhythms. Although a large body of literature reports positive effectsExpand
