Learning and the brain
Date:4/14/2008

>The performing arts foster the sustained attention necessary to improve performance in other areas of cognition.
  • Early interventions and enrichment have long-term measurable benefits and are most beneficial when implemented from birth.
  • Education offers protection against late life cognitive impairment such as Alzheimers disease.
  • Adjusting the school day to be more in accord with the sleep-wake cycles of children and young adults has been solidly shown to have measurable benefits.

    These are just a few of the concrete contributions that neuroscience has made to education, said Kosik.

    This years conference features a prestigious list of faculty members that includes prominent neuroscientists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and educators. Several of them have written important books in the field of learning and the brain.

    Kurt Fischer, director of the Mind Brain and Education Program at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education, will present special remarks. Fischer said that the conference has helped pioneer connecting biology and cognitive science with educational practice and policy. He edits the award-winning new journal, Mind, Brain and Education, published by Blackwell. Every conference brings together top scientists who are doing cutting-edge research with practitioners who lead the way in connecting research to practice, said Fischer. Neuroscience is creating powerful tools that can greatly improve education.

    Conference co-sponsors are: Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Mind Brain and Education Program at Harvard Graduate School of Education; Comer School Development Program, Child Study Center at Yale Medical School; Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives; Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at Boston University; Boston University School of Education; Neuroscience Research Institute at the University of Califo
