Size, wiring of brain structures in kids predict benefit from math tutoring
Source: Stanford School of Medicine, Apr 2013
In a study of third-graders’ responses to math tutoring, Stanford scientists found that the size and wiring of specific brain structures predicted how much an individual child would benefit from math tutoring. However, traditional intelligence measures, such as children’s IQs and their scores on tests of mathematical ability, did not predict improvements from tutoring.
