"The more time that children spent in less-structured activities, the better their self-directed executive functioning. The opposite was true of structured activities, which predicted poorer self-directed executive functioning."

"the spoken word is regarded as secondary – as supplementary explanation for example – while the slides are judged to be the bearers of the real message. We find that students more often note down the text displayed on the slides, while the information conveyed orally by the lecturer is not recorded. In the first study I did on this topic, I found that those who were most convinced that the slides were the important thing retained comparatively little of the information communicated orally by the lecturer."

"The constant changes in these connections, which the researchers call hyperplasticity, is balanced by another inherent trait of neurons -- they have a very low signal to noise ratio, meaning that they receive about as much useless information as useful input from their neighbors.
Most models of neural activity don't include noise, but the MIT team says noise is a critical element of the brain's learning ability."
