A well-balanced and informative study of what brain science can tell us about how and where learning takes place in the brain. Easily readable for the non-specialist, demonstrating both the knowledge and limitations to our knowledge about the what we know about the brain. Useful in reminding about the plasticity of the brain where education is concerned. We can carry on learning throughout most of our lives. Will be well worth reading a second time. Recommended for those who want to know what is scientifically known about learning and brain science.

Establishes a good, basic relationship between biology and pedagogical implications. Goes well with Souza's more detailed How The Brain Learns (which also gives specific advice for classroom practice). Read full review
