Recently there has been growing interest in and debate about the relation between cognitive neuroscience and education. Our goal is to advance the debate beyond both recitation of potentially education-related cognitive neuroscience findings and the claim that a bridge between fields is chimerical. In an attempt to begin a dialogue about mechanisms among students, educators, researchers and practitioner-scientists, we propose that multiple bridges can be built to make connections between… 
Connecting Education and Cognitive Neuroscience: Where will the journey take us?
In recent years there have been growing calls for forging greater connections between education and cognitive neuroscience. As a consequence great hopes for the application of empirical research on
Building Bridges Between Neuroscience, Cognition and Education With Predictive Modeling
As the field of Mind, Brain, and Education seeks new ways to credibly bridge the gap between neuroscience, the cognitive sciences, and education, various connections are being developed and tested.
No brain left behind: consequences of neuroscience discourse for education
Educational neuroscience represents a concerted interdisciplinary effort to bring the fields of cognitive science, neuroscience and education to bear on classroom practice. This article draws
Neuroscience and education: Mind the gap
Although significant advances have been made in our understanding of the neural basis of learning and memory over the past hundred years, the translation of these neuroscientific insights into
Building the connection between mind, brain and educational practice; roadblocks and some prospects
Abstract The fields of education and leadership, in essence, are derivatives of social science research currents. As interdisciplinary fields, to provide practical knowledge about what makes
Explorations in Learning and the Brain: On the Potential of Cognitive Neuroscience for Educational Science
The past decade has witnessed efforts on the part of research, education and policy communities to create a dialogue about the potential relationship between cognitive neuroscience and the science
Scientific and Pragmatic Challenges for Bridging Education and Neuroscience
Educational neuroscience is an emerging effort to integrate neuroscience methods, particularly functional neuroimaging, with behavioral methods to address issues of learning and instruction. This
A model for bridging the gap between neuroscience and education
As the brain sciences make advances in our understanding of how the human brain functions, many educators are looking to findings from the neurosciences to inform classroom teaching methodologies.

TLDR
It seems timely, therefore, to consider how the increased understanding of brain development and brain function to explore educational questions is implemented.
A role for neuroscientists in engaging young minds
TLDR
To encourage such scientist–teacher interactions, changes must be made in the culture of the scientific community to promote these partnerships, with the ultimate goal of improving neuroscience literacy.
Education and the Brain : A Bridge Too Far
B rain science fascinates teachers and educators, just as it fascinates all of us. When I speak to teachers about applications of cognitive science in the classroom, there is always a question or two
Influencing brain networks: implications for education
TLDR
The results obtained appear sufficient to propose research-based interventions that could prove useful in improving the ability of children to adjust to the school setting and to acquire skills like literacy and numeracy.
Pedagogy Meets Neuroscience
TLDR
There is a danger that new efforts to incorporate research in this area into education could be stymied by falsely raising the hopes of the public and policy-makers, and there is the further danger that people will ignore the importance of empirical research in the fields of educational and instructional science, psychology, and information technology.
Child Development and Neuroscience.
TLDR
2 major advances in the developmental brain sciences that have potentially profound implications for under standing behavioral development are discussed.
The role of neuroscience in the remediation of students with dyslexia
TLDR
Treatment of dyslexia has been advanced through neuroscience, yet further study is needed to provide rigorous, reproducible findings that will sustain commercial approaches.
Neuroscience Perspectives on Disparities in School Readiness and Cognitive Achievement
TLDR
The authors show how the extreme stress of being placed in an orphanage leads to abnormal brain development and decreased cognitive functioning and look ahead to the day when effective educational interventions can begin to close racial and socioeconomic gaps in readiness and achievement.

TLDR
Non-invasive imaging of higher-order brain functions in humans will clarify the brain's developmental processes, and will provide various evidence for learning sciences.
