The Neuropsychology of Deeper Memory
February 8, 2024 | 12:00 PM - America/Detroit
Dr. George McCloskey will discuss the critical shifting of motivation away from areas of the brain that focus on immediate gratification to areas of the pre-frontal cortex involved in the development of self-determination (and improve delayed gratification). The major focus of the webinar will be on strategies that strengthen students' capacities for self-regulation, self-realization, and self-determination so that they are better prepared to access and benefit from classroom instruction that leads to increased learning and deeper memory.
