In recent years, important strides have been made in realizing the potential of neuroscience to make meaningful contributions in the field of education.Educational Neuroscience presents a key reference source for students, educators, policy makers, and educational and developmental psychologists interested in bridging the gap between the biological basis of learning and the delivery of education in the classroom. An overview of the latest finding in developmental cognitive neurosciences and their possible applications to education is provided, with individual chapters written collaboratively by educationalists, psychologists and neuroscientists to ensure maximum clarity and relevance to a broad range of readers.

Topics and themes include neuroscience and educational methodologies, language and mathematical development, literacy, and various skills associated with conceptual, social, and emotional development.Educational Neuroscience offers important insights into the current state of research findings related to the interactions between biological processes and education–while paving the way to new frontiers and directions in learning and teaching.
