Trend: Mobile apps to improve vision via perceptual learning
. Vision training: Mobile app improved pilots’ vision (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association): “Military pilots (and other test subjects) have improved their vision after a few weeks of training with a new application for mobile devices—an application now available to the public. The technology has helped dedicated users reverse age-related vision loss, and to help younger people improve on 20/20. Their eyes—including lenses, muscles, and receptors that send signals to the optic nerve—are only incidentally involved: The real work is going on inside the brain… More specifically, the Gla...

Brain health research study by AARP: Consumers pursue brain training to support a more enjoyable, self-managed life
. AARP just released a very interesting brain health research study based on 1,200 online interviews conducted in August 2014. Key findings include: Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important to all consumers (99% find it at least somewhat important). Brain health is the second most important component in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, after heart health (37% find brain health most important while 51% find heart health most important). Younger consumers are more inclined to feel brain health is the most important component to overall health, but they are also more likely to believe that brain deterioration cannot...

Studies point toward clear benefits to cultivating mindfulness in the workplace
. Research says mindfulness works for individuals. But does it work in the bottom-line-driven workplace, or is it just a frivolous feel-good program? This is the question tackled in a growing number of studies. Here are three ways, based on recent studies, that cultivating moment-to-moment awareness might improve workplaces. Meditation might build self-confidence in leaders A.D. Amar and colleagues at the University of Westminster measured the self-perception of leadership skills among a sample of senior managers in the London area—and then put them through a 12-week secularized Vipassana meditation-training program....

What is the extent of motor influence on speech perception?
Although I am thoroughly convinced that an extreme version of the motor/mirror neuron theory of speech perception is untenable, I am quite open to the possibility that the motor system may influence speech perception.  That is, I view speech perception as fundamentally an auditory process (wild claim, I know!) but one that can be modulated by contextual sources including acoustic, visual, semantic, sentential and yes, motor information.  To illustrate, here is a quote from my 2011 paper with John Houde and Feng Rong: … we suggest … under some circumstances forward predictions from the motor s...
