ABSTRACT: Retrieval practice enhances the ability to evaluate complex physiology information

Objective: Many investigations have shown that retrieval practice enhances the recall of different types of information, including both medical and physiological, but the effects of the strategy on higher‐order thinking, such as evaluation, are less clear. The primary aim of this study was to compare how effectively retrieval practice and repeated

RESOURCE: Neuroscience and How Students Learn

Neuroscience fundamentals Changing the brain: For optimal learning to occur, the brain needs conditions under which it is able to change in response to stimuli (neuroplasticity) and able to produce new neurons (neurogenesis). The most effective learning involves recruiting multiple regions of the brain for the learning task. These regions are associated

CLASSIC: Association Between Funding and Quality of Published Medical Education Research

Context Methodological shortcomings in medical education research are often attributed to insufficient funding, yet an association between funding and study quality has not been established. Objectives To develop and evaluate an instrument for measuring the quality of education research studies and to assess the relationship between funding and study quality. Design, Setting, and Participants Internal
