euromyths are misconceptions about how the brain works and learns. These myths typically exist because of overgeneralization in research findings, or because of misinterpretations of research in the media. (Think back to Molly Crockett in Module One).
Additionally, businesses may use neuromyths to market products that claim to improve brain function. These products typically do not have any good research backing the claims for their effectiveness. Below is a list of common neuromyths that the public, and even academics, may incorrectly believe.
- We use only 10% of our brain.
- People are either right- or left-brained.
- There are critical periods in childhood after which certain things can no longer be learned.
- Children are less attentive after consuming sugary drinks and/or snacks.
- Learning problems associated with developmental differences in brain function cannot be remediated by education.
- Children must acquire their native language before a second language is learned. If they do not, neither language will be fully acquired.
Research one of the myths on the list. What research findings may have been overgeneralized or misinterpreted to cause this myth to exist? What ethical issues must be considered when researchers are sharing their findings with the general public?
I need this in a couple hours, APA formatting and a citation. This is only a coupe paragraphs to 1 page. Please make sure you have time now to work on this.
