Comprehension: Bloom’s and the Extended Response Rubric
Executive Function & Hippocampus Internet User and Google Executive function is the conscious search for and connection of memories...Like a person searching Google for the answer to a question. Hippocampus is like Google. It retrieves information stored (posted) in any portion of the brain.
During this process the teacher engages with the student to encourage them to “travel” between executive function (conscious thought and effort) and the hippocampus which is the hub of memory recall. The student then assembles the memories and attaches new instruction to previous memory and understanding. While this instruction is occurring, the amygdala, RAS, and the limbic system are either facilitating the effort with positive reinforcement in the form of neurotransmitors such as dopamine and norepinepherine… …or this system becomes over stimulated and evokes unconscious emotional responses that greatly inhibit all of the previous cognitive functions such as word recognition, meaning, pronunciation, memory recall, and executive function.
