Mind, Brain, and Education: Neuroscience Implications for the Classroom is the sixth book in the Leading Edge¿ series. The Leading Edge series unites education authorities from around the globe and asks them to confront the important issues that affect teachers and administrators¿the issues that profoundly impact student success. Mind, Brain, and Education is a landmark publication in the emerging science of educational neuroscience. The leading researchers who contribute to the volume use neuroscience¿s growing knowledge of how the brain functions and develops to explore the field¿s implications for pedagogy and the classroom. The contributors investigate such questions as the following: ¿ What are the neurological foundations of learning and of individual differences in learning? ¿ How did educators get involved with neuroscience, and where might this involvement lead? ¿ What does neuroscience reveal about the brain¿s ability to use written and spoken language, to use mathematics, and to think creatively? ¿ How can educational neuroscience improve the teaching of these abilities?

Dr. David A. Sousa is an international consultant in educational neuroscience and author of 15 books that suggest ways that educators and parents can translate current brain research into strategies for improving learning. A member of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society, he has conducted workshops in hundreds of school districts on brain research, instructional skills, and science education at the Pre-K to 12 and university levels. He has made presentations to more than 100,000 educators at national conventions of educational organizations and to regional and local school districts across the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.Dr. Sousa has a bachelorrsquo;s degree in chemistry from Bridgewater State University, a Master of Arts in Teaching degree in science from Harvard University, and a doctorate from Rutgers University.
