Many authors of software providing computer-aided instruction (CAI) have no background in educational theories. This paper reviews teaching theories and ways in which instructional principles can be applied to CAI. While the lecture form of teaching has often been maligned, there are techniques for enhancing lectures that can also apply to CAI. Effective(More)
Selective treatments which alter the catecholamine content of discrete areas of the brain were tested for their effect on electroshock seizure intensity in the rat. The data indicate that depletion of noradrenaline and dopamine in near ventricular areas by the intracerebroventricular administration of the benzoquinolizine, Ro 4-1284, enhances electroshock(More)

DESIGN Randomized, two-phase crossover study. SETTING A clinical research unit in a university-based teaching hospital. PATIENTS Six healthy, volunteer men.(More)
The development of computer-aided instructional (CAI) systems suffers from a lack of a cohesive theory of learning--how do students acquire and store knowledge? From studies of computer systems that learn and tutor, we can infer generic activities that appear to be integral parts of the learning process, such as aggregation, clustering, characterization,(More)
