Dissecting Dyslexia and Learning Difficulties in learning to read, despite reasonable effort and instruction, form the basis of dyslexia. Gabrieli (p. 280; see the cover) now reviews the latest research into the causes of dyslexia. Neuroimaging studies may give early notice of impending dyslexia, and it is hoped that early interventions may lessen the impact of dyslexia. Learning occurs in many settings. Humans uniquely use the formalized settings of schools and curriculum. Infants and children… 
Implications of Social Neuroscience for Learning Technology Research and Development
Neuroscientific research has unequivocally pointed to the deeply social nature of human learning. Learning at the cognitive behavioral level is underpinned by neurophysiological changes in brain
RETRACTED ARTICLE: Incremental Science Learning in Toddler's Play
Vygotsky [1997. The history of the development of higher mental functions (M. J. Hall, Trans. Vol. 4). New York: Plenum Press] argues that at the infant–toddler age, children imitate everyday life in
Procedural Learning, Dyslexia and Delayed Neural Commitment
In this chapter we address the underlying causes of dyslexia, the developmental learning disability, rather than reading disability. In our breakthrough research over 25 years ago we demonstrated
What can neuroscience teach us about teaching
The study of perception, learning, memory and recall are converging to unite education with neuroscience the scientific study of the nervous systemaround the emerging field of neuroeducation. In this
Developments in educational neuroscience: implications for the art and science of learning
ABSTRACT Learning is a complex phenomenon where a learner constitutes a system operating at neural, physiological, cognitive and social levels, with interactions between and across processes and
Development of Dyslexia: The Delayed Neural Commitment Framework
TLDR
The “Delayed Neural Commitment (DNC)” framework proposes that, in addition to slower skill acquisition, dyslexic children take longer to build the neural networks that underpin the acquisition of reading.
Learning by Observation: Insights from Williams Syndrome
TLDR
Observing another person performing a complex action accelerates the observer’s acquisition of the same action and limits the time-consuming process of learning by trial and error, which was advantageous for acquiring competencies.

TLDR
It is shown that there are no current examples of neuroscience motivating new and effective teaching methods, and it is argued that neuroscience is unlikely to improve teaching in the future.

TLDR
Evidence relating socio-economic status (SES) to brain function for language suggests that SES should be considered a proxy for the opportunity to learn and that the complexity of language input is a significant factor in developing brain areas related to language.
The New Science of Learning and Why Students Forget Their Economics So Quickly
The human brain has automatic, built-in abilities to filter and discard information so that the vast majority of the information that enters our senses is deleted. Consequently, the result is that

TLDR
A comparative analysis between studies of infants imitating and learning from human demonstrators, and computational experiments aimed at equipping a robot with such abilities is provided.
The neural basis of cognitive development: A constructivist manifesto
TLDR
Neural constructivism suggests that the evolutionary emergence of neocortex in mammals is a progression toward more flexible representational structures, in contrast to the popular view of cortical evolution as an increase in innate, specialized circuits.
Neural substrates of language acquisition.
TLDR
Developmental neuroscience studies using language are beginning to answer questions about the origins of humans' language faculty, and individual continuity in linguistic development from infants' earliest responses to phonemes is reflected in infants' language abilities in the second and third year of life.
