I thought I would try my hand at writing the occasional blog post where I will critique papers, take opinionated positions on various topics, discuss some of my own work, and so forth.
Reading and Literacy Instruction
25/5/2018 | There is little evidence that systematic phonics is better than whole language and other common methods used in schools (and no, this is not evidence for whole language)
2/2/2018 | Educational neuroscience, phonics, and a more promising way to teach reading
Here I post a recent discussion I had with Scott Mills regarding educational neuroscience and reading instruction, topics that relate to Bowers (2016) and Bowers and Bowers (2017).
27/10/2017 | The persistent and unreasonable confusion regarding grandmother cells
My first post criticises a recent high-profile paper by Chang and Tsao (2017) that claims to falsify the grandmother cell hypothesis. It only falsifies a straw-man hypothesis.
I welcome any and all responses!
