Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Visual and Auditory Multi-Tasking

Learning Visions

Monday, June 18, 2007 Visual and Auditory Multi-Tasking From the Eide Neurolearning Blog: Voluntary Control of Attention - Visual and Auditory Multi-Tasking There is a yin and yang effect between visual and auditory attention. Mixed visual-auditory stimuli have an underadditive effect, so that if you have to do both at the same time, total brain activation goes down. Maybe the "underadditive effect" occurs when a multimedia presentation does all the thinking for you.

The idea of learning styles commonly refers to some notion for a preferred way of learning. I usually lunge for the mute button, but often I still have to wait for the now-silent narration to finish before Im allowed to move on. Im with you.
