Adjustments Mind Your Errors : Evidence for a Neural Mechanism Linking Growth Mind-Set to Adaptive Posterror

How well people bounce back from mistakes depends on their beliefs about learning and intelligence. For individuals with a growth mind-set, who believe intelligence develops through effort, mistakes are seen as opportunities to learn and improve. For individuals with a fixed mind-set, who believe intelligence is a stable characteristic, mistakes indicate lack of ability. We examined performance-monitoring event-related potentials (ERPs) to probe the neural mechanisms underlying these different… Expand

Students’ mindsets for learning and their neural underpinnings
It has been shown that individuals with a growth mindset for learning see mistakes as opportunities to learn and improve, whereas for fixed-minded individuals mistakes indicate lack of ability.Expand
Incremental View on Intelligence and High Intrinsic Motivation Increase Working Memory Training Compliance
Working memory (WM) training is demanding both regarding time and cognitive endurance. Many participants who could benefit from completing the training lose their motivation to do so. Hence, it isExpand
The Benefits of a Whole-School Approach to Growth Mindset on Both Staff and Students
This qualitative research study examines the question: how can the philosophy of growth mindset be applied to various grade levels of an elementary school and what are the benefits of a whole-schoolExpand
The Implementation and Impact of Growth Mindset in a North Texas School District
Growth mindset strategies are linked to positive academic behaviors. Additionally, it is common knowledge that a school’s learning environment and the teachers’ attitudes and points of view areExpand
Neuropeptide S receptor (NPSR1) gene variation modulates response inhibition and error monitoring
The more active NPSR1 T allele may confer enhanced response inhibition and increased error monitoring and might drive particularly error monitoring as a neurophysiological endophenotype of anxiety as reflected by increased anxiety sensitivity. Expand
HAYES: AN ANALYSIS AND EVALUATION OF A MATHS CURRICULUM LEADING TO A PROPOSAL FOR AN INNOVATION TO THIS CURRICULUM Citation Hayes, D. (2017) ‘An analysis and evaluation of a maths curriculum leading to a proposal for an innovation

With a focus on the new GCSE maths curriculum and in particular its implementation in a FE college in South Devon, this report aimed to evaluate and analyse different curriculum models that affectExpand
Network Community Structure Detection for Directional Neural Networks Inferred From Multichannel Multisubject EEG Data
A community detection algorithm for weighted asymmetric (directed) networks representing the effective connectivity in the brain, and the issue of finding a common community structure across subjects is addressed by maximizing the total modularity of the group. Expand
Adaptive rescheduling of error monitoring in multitasking
For the first time reporting a Pe that is temporally detached from its eliciting error event by a considerable amount of time, this study illustrates how reliable error detection in dual-tasking is maintained by a mechanism that adaptively schedules error processing. Expand


Why do beliefs about intelligence influence learning success? A social cognitive neuroscience model.
It is suggested that beliefs can influence learning success through top-down biasing of attention and conceptual processing toward goal-congruent information. Expand
Cross-task individual differences in error processing: Neural, electrophysiological, and genetic components
It was found that negative learners, as assessed via probabilistic learning, had larger ERNs in the recognition memory task, suggestive of a common underlying enhanced error-processing mechanism, and a role for the Pe and frontal monoamines in error awareness. Expand
Decision Processes in Human Performance Monitoring
The results suggest that the Pe, rather than the Ne/ERN, is closely related to error detection, and specifically reflects the accumulated evidence that an error has been committed. Expand
Error-related brain potentials are differentially related to awareness of response errors: evidence from an antisaccade task.
Results from the present experiment are consistent with the view that the Ne and Pe reflect the activity of two separate error monitoring processes, of which only the later process, reflected by the Pe, is associated with conscious error recognition and remedial action. Expand
Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
Every so often a truly groundbreaking idea comes along. This is one. Mindset explains: Why brains and talent don’t bring success How they can stand in the way of it Why praising brains and talentExpand
Anxiety and error-related brain activity
Results indicate that subjects who score high on a measure of general anxiety and worry have enhanced error-related brain activity relative to both phobic and non-anxious control subjects. Expand
Localization of a Neural System for Error Detection and Compensation
Gehring, Goss, Coles, Meyer, and Donchin (1993) have reported electrophysiological evidence for a brain mechanism dedicated to monitoring performance and compensating for errors (see alsoExpand
Dissociable correlates of response conflict and error awareness in error-related brain activity
Findings suggest a dissociation between the ERN and the Pe, with the former reflecting the dynamics of response selection and conflict, and the latter reflecting conscious recognition of an error. Expand
Anterior cingulate cortex, error detection, and the online monitoring of performance.
Results confirm that this region shows activity during erroneous responses, but activity was also observed in the same region during correct responses under conditions of increased response competition, which suggests that the ACC detects conditions under which errors are likely to occur rather than errors themselves. Expand
To err is autonomic: error-related brain potentials, ANS activity, and post-error compensatory behavior.
The ERN correlated with the number of errors, but was unrelated to ANS activity and compensatory behavior, and Pe, on the other hand, was correlated significantly with SCR, and both SCR and Pe were significantly correlated with post-error slowing. Expand
