As our understanding of neuroscience grows, so too does our potential ability to apply that knowledge to the betterment of society.  Education is a clear example of this; a scientific understanding of how we learn can help us form more effective ways to teach.  In order for this enterprise to be successful, we must reflect on what educational challenges face society today, where and how, specifically, neuroscience might help us structure policy and pedagogy, and the moral and ethical principles that define what education is and question what it ought to be.

This event is free and open to the public. Reception to follow.

This event is part of the Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience, Seminars in Society and Neuroscience series.
