As we move deeper into the 21st century, there is no doubt that neuroscience and advancements in brain mapping and brain scanning will have an increasing impact on teaching. We are seeing a gradual revolution in the impact of neuroscience on education. We live in a special time where neuroscience, cognitive science, behavioural psychology, and pedagogy are starting to intertwine Teachers will no longer have the option of thinking that neuroscience and Mind-Brain Education is only for the science teacher. All teachers will be expected to be negro teachers.
This module considers some of the myths and misconceptions associated with brain-based learning and also examines the importance of neuroplasticity in the field of teaching and learning.

Of all the neurotransmitters in the brain, perhaps the most significant one from the teacher’s perspective is dopamine – the brain chemical associated with movement, attention, learning, and the brain’s pleasure and reward system. When...
Teachers are not expected to become neuroscientists. But it is essential that their teaching practice is informed by the latest research in Mind Brain Education. As education is becoming a science there is less and...
By understanding how the brain works, educators are better equipped to help students with everything from focusing attention to increasing retention. That’s the promise of brain-based learning, which draws insights from neurology, psychology, technology, and...
