9781591473817: Educating the Human Brain

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. of experimental setups, and graphs and tables displaying key data - also give this book appeal for graduate students.

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
