Neuro-Quiz

From the Wall Street Journal:

Pop quiz: Which of these statements is false?

1. We use only 10% of our brain.

2. Environments rich in stimuli improve the brains of preschool children.

3. Individuals learn better when they receive information in their preferred learning style, whether auditory, visual or kinesthetic.

See here for the answer. It's an interview of Christopher Chabris, a psych professor.

See this by Cedar Reiner for context.

See this magazine article by Reiner and Dan Willingham for more on learning styles.

There is no credible evidence that learning styles exist. While we will elaborate on this assertion, it is important to counteract the real harm that may be done by equivocating on the matter.
