Why does Neuroscience Belong in Classroom Practice?

“There is nothing more human than the human brain.” Educators study childhood development and now as the field of neuroscience expands, why wouldn’t educators grasp the opportunity to explore this incredible depth of knowledge to enhance their practice and daily interactions with their students?

How Do We Learn and How is Information Stored in Long-term Memory?

Learning is the act of making (and strengthening) connections between thousands of neurons forming neural networks or maps.

And when we want to remember something, we call on those neurons to become activated so we can recall what we’ve learned before.
