    New discoveries in the field of developmental cognitive neuroscience hold great promise for improving current teaching methods. Yet there remains a significant gap between the scientific discoveries that could improve our education system and the application of this knowledge. This meeting will highlight cutting-edge developments in cognitive neuroscience that could improve current teaching methods and will include a careful review of the current obstacles to applying these methods in the classroom as well as the related emotional, sociological, and environmental factors. Keynote lectures will feature Goldie Hawn (The Hawn Foundation) and Carl Wieman (White House Office of Science and Technology Policy).
