From the Publisher:

Michael I. Posner and Mary K. Rothbart have for many years combined their formidable talents in explorations of human development. In this wonderful new book, they have distilled work that views human behavior through a synthesis of neuroscience, individual differences, and social context. The relevant material emerges in a manner accessible to neuroscientists, social scientists, educators, and concerned parents alike. Their contributions will guide our thinking for years to come. --Marcus E. Raichle, MD, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO

Anybody who thinks neuroscience is not yet ready for the field of education had better read this book. Posner and Rothbart lay out a sensible and accessible story that will impact the classroom for years to come. --Michael S. Gazzaniga, PhD, Director, Sage Center for the Study of Mind, University of California, Santa Barbara

Educating the Human Brain is a thoughtful and compassionate book, rich in up-to-the-minute research on the myriad aspects of the child's learning brain. The combination of extraordinary scientific expertise and clear communication makes this book a wonderful resource for educators and psychologists or for anyone with the desire to understand and nurture children's social, cognitive, and sensory development in the context of solid research. --Guinevere Eden, DPhil, Director, Center for the Study of Learning, Georgetown University, Washington, DC

Two giants in their fields--cognitive neuroscience and child development--have teamed up to write a fascinating overview of the neuroscience of education. This book is a much-needed antidote to the inaccuracy and overinterpretation of so many contemporary books on education and the brain. Posner and Rothbart's science is first rate, their vision of education inspiring, and their writing crystal clear. I recommend this book to scientists, educators, and anyone interested in the biological bases of human potential and its development. --Martha J. Farah, PhD, Director, Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, and Professor of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia

About the Author:

Michael Posner is currently Professor Emeritus at the University of Oregon and Adjunct Prof. of Psychology in Psychiatry at the Weill Medical College of Cornell, where he served as founding director of the Sackler Institute. Posner is best known for his work with Marcus Raichle on imaging the human brain during cognitive tasks. He has worked on the anatomy, circuitry, development and genetics of three attentional networks underlying maintaining alertness, orienting to sensory events and voluntary control of thoughts and ideas. His methods for measuring these networks have been applied to a wide range of neurological, psychiatric and developmental disorders. Since 1980 he has worked with Mary K. Rothbart to understand the interaction of specific experience and genes in the development and efficiency of attentional networks.

Mary Rothbart is a Distinguished Professor Emerita at the University of Oregon. She studies temperament, emotional and social development, and for the last 25 years has worked with Michael Posner studying the development of attention and its relation to temperamental effortful control. She co-edited the book, Temperament in Childhood, and co-authored with Holly Ruff the book, Attention in Early Development. She has also made contributions to the education and support of new parents through Eugene, Oregon's Birth to Three organization. This year, the group honored her as a "Champion for Children."

Descripción American Psychological Association, United States, 2006. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Educating the Human Brain is the product of a quarter century of research. This book provides an empirical account of the early development of attention and self regulation in infants and young children. It examines the brain areas involved in regulatory networks, their connectivity, and how their development is influenced by genes and experience. Relying on the latest techniques in cognitive and temperament measurement, neuroimaging, and molecular genetics, the book integrates research on neural networks common to all of us with studies of individual differences. In this book, the authors explain where, when, and how the brain performs functions that are necessary for learning. Such functions include attending to information; controlling attention through effort; regulating the interplay of emotion with cognition; and coding, organizing, and retrieving information. The authors suggest how these aspects of brain development can support school readiness, literacy, numeracy, and expertise. The audience for this book includes neuroscientists as well as developmental and educational psychologists who have interest in the latest brain research. The many helpful visuals - including brain diagrams, pictures and photographs of experimental setups, and graphs and tables displaying key data - also give this book appeal for graduate students.
