Overview

The intellectual distance between education and cognitive neuroscience will be significantly shortened for all who read about the contributions of cognitive neuroscience to teaching and learning initiatives. This book integrates the ideas of the major theorists and focuses on the six significant domains of neuroscience (experience, attention, perception, knowledge, acquisition, memory, and retrieval) relationships to information processing. Explanatory vignettes are inserted throughout the text to provide practical examples of how learners acquire, organize, and use knowledge.
