New legal skills-related scholarship: "Brain Plasticity and the Impact of the Electronic Environment in Law and Learning"

This one is by Sherry L. Leysen, a reference librarian at U. Washington, and can be found here at the Legal Reference Services Quarterly (subscription required). From the abstract:

Brain plasticity has become a hot topic in educational circles. As computers and the Internet fundamentally change how we work and how we learn, law librarians need to understand the implications of brain plasticity and learning styles. This article introduces the human brain's amazing ability to adapt and form connections that allow us to do a great number of things—including our ability to read at all.
