Brain Based Learning

For over a decade, the Learning & the Brain (R) conferences have been at the forefront of the “neuroeducation” movement, also known as “brain based learning.” While the term “brain based learning” is often used, the fact is that everything that we humans do, including learning, involves both our brains and our minds. But the use of brain based learning simply refers to the fact that our ability to learn is based on the structure and function of the brain.  Understanding the brain and how it works gives us a better understanding of the role of stress, abuse, or brain injury on learning and how to work with students with learning disorders.  It also refers new approaches to schooling that educators believe are in accord with recent research on the brain and human learning.
