Understanding the Brain: The Birth of a Learning Science

image of Understanding the Brain: The Birth of a Learning Science

This book provides new insights about learning by synthesising existing and emerging findings from cognitive and brain science and exploring how this new information might impact teaching, parenting, and educational policy making. It shows what the latest brain imaging techniques and other advances in the neurosciences actually reveal about how the brain develops and operates at different stages in life from birth to old age and how the brain is involved in acquiring skills such as reading and counting. It also presents scientific insights into what happens when the brain malfunctions in conditions such as dyslexia or Alzheimer's disease. 

China Education Daily nominated this book as one of the "100 most influential education books for teachers" on December 15, 2011.

The Ethics and Organisation of Educational Neuroscience

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

This chapter addresses the field of educational neuroscience itself. It describes how the emergence of this multi-disciplinary field has been one of the main contributions of the OECD-CERI project on “Learning Sciences and Brain Research”. It highlights a variety of exemplary trans-disciplinary projects and institutions which have already been set up and are active in contributing to this new field. The research involved and its applications are also fraught with ethical challenges: these are openly laid out and some of the key choices clarified.
