Item description for Understanding the Brain: Towards a New Learning Science by OECD Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Develop...
Over the last ten years, advances in non-invasive brain scanning and imaging technologies have opened up new methods of work for researchers. More has been learned about the functioning of the brain in the past decade than in all the preceding centuries. Research into the brains capacity to develop, learn, and change throughout the will have profound implications for learning and education.
The new "science of learning" sheds light on how the brain produces perception, memory, and language, and on the importance of the early and late years in successful lifelong learning. It provides, among other things, insights into how to improve reading and mathematical skills, and highlights the significance of the distinction between nature and nurture in learning and brain development.
Understanding the Brain focuses on the importance of adopting a transdisciplinary approach, involving cognitive neuroscience, psychology, education, and health. When teachers, the medical profession, and scientists work together, there is real hope for early diagnosis of, and appropriate intervention in, conditions such as dyslexia or Alzheimers disease.
These, and many other exciting issues, are discussed in this book.
