Neuroscience and Education: An Ideal Partnership for Producing Evidence-Based Solutions to Guide 21(st) Century Learning

Neuron. 2010 Sep 9;67(5):685-8. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2010.08.028.


Neuro-Education is a nascent discipline that seeks to blend the collective fields of neuroscience, psychology, cognitive science, and education to create a better understanding of how we learn and how this information can be used to create more effective teaching methods, curricula, and educational policy. Though still in its infancy as a research discipline, this initiative is already opening critical new dialog between teachers, administrators, parents, and brain scientists.
