Research in Brain Science (Cognitive Neuroscience) has been making great strides in recent years. We now know a lot more about brain plasticity, memory, learning, concussions, Alzheimer’s, sleep, dyslexia, ADHD, and a host of other aspects of brain functioning. I enjoy reading about this research progress and the efforts to translate the research into improvements in the everyday lives of all people.
I am particularly interested in improving education. So, I keep asking myself, “What have we learned from brain science that makes a significant difference in the quality of education being received by students of all ages and throughout the world?”
