What does neuroscience have to offer education? A panel of leading developmental neuroscientists and master educators explain how a deepening understanding of interdependent neural processes can revolutionize teaching and learning. Emotions do not interfere with learning, as we once believed, but rather are crucial to our ability to engage complex ideas, process and retain information, and build on experience. By applying insights about interconnected social, emotional, and cognitive development pathways to the classroom, we can dramatically improve the academic success and lifelong well-being of young people.
