Monograph No. 8: Educational Neuroscience
Edited by Norah Frederickson, Diana Laurillard and Andrew Tolmie
Educational neuroscience is an emerging discipline that brings together professional educational practitioners and cognitive neuroscientists in a joint research programme that aims to understand the application of the science to educational practice with all the disciplines focusing on the shared problem of how to promote better learning across the lifespan.
This monograph is developed from the international papers given at the first interdisciplinary conference on educational neuroscience in the UK in June 2010, hosted by the Centre for Educational Neuroscience. It maps out the current interdisciplinary findings on this problem. Papers from leading international researchers show how literacy, numeracy, social, emotional and conceptual development could be enhanced by the deeper understanding of cognition and learning that neuroscience offers.
