Episode 91 | Dr. Tracy Allow and Jungle Memory

Lori Boll and I talk with Dr. Tracy Alloway about working memory versus long term memory. We have an interesting discussion working memory (think short term) and how it relates to people with autism. We also discuss her working memory enhancing program called Jungle Learning.

Here is more about Tracy from her website:

Tracy Packiam Alloway, PhD, is the Director of the Center for Memory and Learning in the Lifespan at the University of Stirling, UK. She is the author of over 75 scientific articles and books on working memory and learning, and has developed the world’s first standardized working-memory tests for educators published by Pearson. Her research has received widespread international coverage, appearing in outlets such as the Guardian, Daily Mail, Scientific American, Forbes, US News, ABC News, and NBC. She is much in demand international speaker in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. She is an advisor to the World Bank on the importance of working memory.

    If the prolapse is to the side of the centre then the results are weakness of one side with possible pain on the other side. Protrusions which point far to the side result in compression of the nerve root which can give severe pain to one side of the same nature as sciatica.

    Yet another shameless attempt in the autism community to exploit parental guilt to promote a product for personal profit. There is minimal evidence that brain games and such have any meaningful long lasting benefit – (take a look here for example http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7912379.stm).
    Please stop giving air-time to this kind of unsubstantiated yet hyped up BS.
