What Can Cognitive Neuroscience Do to Enhance Our Understanding of Education and Learning?
The development and popularity of brain science have driven many people to look to the brain for answers to improving learning. Cognitive neuroscience as an interdisciplinary area of research with a focus on human cognition has the potential to connect the brain and education. This paper explores what cognitive neuroscience can (and cannot) do to enhance our understanding of education and learning by examining in greater depth why certain previous attempts to bridge this gap are more successful than others. This paper also discusses the implications of this merge for scientists and educators, and future directions for research in neuroscience and neuroengineering.
