Brain Science and Education: Is it Still a Bridge Too Far?


Does neuroscience have the potential to inform education? In this debate, three participants will describe emerging results in neuroscience with translatable links to learning and memory. Experts in learning sciences will discuss connections as well as limits in the ways that neuroscience can inform education at the individual and classroom levels. Although significant progress has been made in our understanding of how the brain learns and remembers, the question for this symposium is whether this progress does or can provide a direct bridge from brain science to education.
