About Daniel J. Belliveau
A neuroscientist and gross anatomist by training, Dan Belliveau’s research interest focuses on the “science of learning”. Presently he is focusing on two particular areas of learning. First, does three-dimensional representations of anatomy enhance the learning environment? Using the Anatatorium’s unique stereoscopic projection system, anatomical models can be constructed and deconstructed in three dimensions allowing students to complement their more traditional learning. Second, the influence of competition on learning is being actively investigated. Using novel question delivery technologies, Dr. Belliveau is exploring the role of peer-to-peer competition in preparing for and performing on examinations. Together, these studies address the intrinsic and extrinsic cues that influence student learning in an academic setting.
