About Us

Learning & the Brain® brings neuroscientists and educators together to explore new research on the brain and learning and its implications for education. These conferences and summer institutes bring cutting-edge neuroscience and educational research directly from the researchers themselves to educators, clinicians, counselors, speech-language and special education professionals to improve their practice. Anne Rosenfeld and Kelly Williams at Public Information Resources, Inc. created Learning & the Brain® conferences in 1999 to serve an unmet need in the educational community. Research centers and labs at Harvard, Yale, MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, UC Berkeley, University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins,and other leading institutes have joined forces with us to provide the latest findings and co-sponsor our efforts. Today, Learning & the Brain® produces three multi-day conferences a year, a one-day symposium in New York City, five hands-on summer institutes, and many one-day seminars. In addition, through the Learning & the Brain® Foundation, Public Information Resources, Inc. supports upcoming and senior researchers in the field of neuroeducation with the 'Transforming Education Through Neuroscience' award. Learning & the Brain® also sponsors the online Learning & the Brain® Society and an online store.
