Neuroscience in Education

The good, the bad, and the ugly

Edited by Sergio Della Sala and Mike Anderson

  • Presents a thorough and critical appraisal of neuroscience and education, showing where science can help us in education, and where its findings have been inappropriately and incorrectly applied
  • Debunks some of the new policies and practices that emerged in education, resulting from a simple misundersanding of the field of neuroscience
  • Includes chapters from leading psychologists, neuroscientists, and geneticists, who critically examine some of the questionable practices introduced into schools in recent years
