What Your Brain Can Tell You About Learning

What Your Brain Can Tell You About Learning
Cognitive neuroscientists are discovering new insights into how our brains learn all the time, but lab research doesn't always translate to real world of education. S&C asked three brain scientists—and organizers of the Academy's Aspen Brain Forum—about their own work and how it can be applied to the classroom.

The 2011 Aspen Brain Forum, a collaboration between the New York Academy of Sciences and the Aspen Brain Forum Foundation, presented the "Cognitive Neuroscience of Learning: Implications for Education" September 22-24 in Aspen, CO.
