This course explores current issues in Educational Neuroscience and Behavior by looking at typical and atypical function, including learning difficulties. Foundational areas of neuroscience, such as brain anatomy and brain mapping techniques, and their application to education are explored. Students will develop a critical understanding of brain anatomy, mechanisms, and cognitive function, in the context of educational neuroscience, incorporating individual differences, group differences, and ethical issues. Links between neuroscience and education are approached from different viewpoints, with the purpose independently developing educationally-relevant questions that can be addressed with brain-based techniques.
