Co-Principal Investigator: Carol S. Dweck (Stanford University)
The researchers of this project are using electrophysiological techniques to examine how students with different beliefs about intelligence attend to and process information in difficult learning tasks, and whether modifying these beliefs supports learning, despite task difficulty and stereotypes about intelligence.
