Let's Put Brain Science on the Back Burner.
Bruer, John T.
NASSP Bulletin, v82 n598 p9-19 May 1998
New results in neuroscience point to the brain's lifelong capacity to reshape itself in response to experience. Educators' great challenge is developing learning environments and practices to exploit the brain's lifelong plasticity. This challenge will be met by carefully studying human behavior and behavior change. Brain science should return to the back burner, along with synaptic formation misconceptions.
