Applying Brain Research

In the 1990s, scientists began using Functional MRIs (fMRIs) to see how the brain functions. A fMRI is different than a normal MRI that looks at the structure of the brain. Check out John Medina’s website on brain rules. ” Brain Rules by John Medina.

SME Brains

Clark Quinn

One of the artifacts about how our brain works is that we compile knowledge away. As Richard Clark of the Cognitive Technology Lab at USC lets us know, about 70% of what SMEs do isn’t available to their conscious mind. As I push for better learning design, I’m regularly reminded that working with subject matter experts (SMEs) is critical, and problematic. What makes SMEs has implications that are challenging but also offers a uniquely valuable perspective.
