Learning with the Brain in Mind

Learning with the Brain in Mind by Frank McNeil

LB 1060 .M397 2009

Learning with the Brain in Mind offers a fresh approach to teaching, exploring recent findings in neuroscience that apply to learning in three crucial and interconnected areas, Attention, Emotions, and Memory.  Attention is now understood as the foundation for intellectual development.  Emotional relationships are seen as the basis for brain growth and provide the foundations for acquiring cognitive and social skills.  Memory has important influences on the sense of self and therefore on learning.” — back cover of book
