The Impact of Gestures on Formal Language Learning and Its Neural Correlates: A Study Proposal
Sprache des Titels:
Information Systems and Neuroscience
This pilot study reports about the impact of gestures on learning a formal language like Python. The aim of this research-in-progress is to find out if memory performance will benefit from the coupling of gestures and words in the learning phase. Previous research has demonstrated that gestures accompanying speech have an impact on memory for verbal information. This is the first study applying the body-mind concept to formal language learning. We introduce the study design and the results of one person.
