Students’ Brains Sync Up When They’re in an Engaging Class

Using portable headsets, researchers studied adolescent brain activity during an entire semester of biology classes at a New York high school. They have found that when the students’ brain waves were in sync, they were more engaged with the class.

In addition, "… student pairs who reported feeling closer to one another also tended to experience more brain synchronicity during class—but only when they had spent time face-to-face just before the class began." This type of research could help better understand environments that enhance brain functions.
