A guide to the science behind the art of teaching. Not every teaching method touted as "brain-friendly" is supported by research findings—and misconceptions about the brain have the capacity to harm rather than help. In her new book, Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa untangles scientific fact from pedagogical fiction, debunking dozens of widely held beliefs about the brain that have made their way into the education literature. In ten central chapters on topics ranging from brain structure to classroom environments, the text traces the origins of common neuromyths—from categorizing individuals as "right-brained" or "left-brained" to prevailing beliefs about multitasking or the effects of video games—and corrects the record with the most current state of knowledge. Rather than offering pat strategies, Tokuhama-Espinosa challenges teachers curious about the brain to become learning scientists, and supplies the tools needed to evaluate research and put it to use in the classroom.

This book offers a definitive, scientifically grounded guide for better teaching and learning practices. Drawing from thousands of documents and the opinions of recognized experts worldwide, it explains in straight talk the new Mind, Brain, and Education Science—a field that has grown out of the intersection of neuroscience, education, and psychology. While parents and teachers are often bombarded with promises of "a better brain," this book distinguishes true, applicable neuroscience from the popular neuromyths that have gained currency in education. Each instructional guideline presented in the book is accompanied by real-life classroom examples to help teachers envision the direct application of the information in their own schools. The authors offer essential tools for evaluating new information as it flows from research and adds to what we know. Written by a teacher for teachers, this easy-to-use resource: Documents the findings of the top experts in the field of neuroscience, psychology, and education.Addresses the confusion around the misuse of concepts in brain-based education.Applies well-substantiated findings about the brain to classroom practice and teaching. “Up to this point, there has been little consensus among researchers and educators as to the potential applications of brain research to educational policies and practices. Understanding this, Tokuhama used a Delphi technique to poll recognized experts in both education and neuroscience to gain agreement as to what, in this newly emerging field, is well established, what is probably true, what is intelligent speculation, and what are ‘neuromyths.’ This seminal book has the potential to change the way we think about teaching and learning.” —From the Foreword by Pat Wolfe, educational consultant, Mind Matters, Inc. “This is not only an excellent guide for teachers and a most-needed review of the cutting-edge research on neuroeducation, but also a model of pedagogy. The author guides readers step-by-step in the fascinating exploration of the new transdisciplinary field called MBE—Mind, Brain and Education Science. I recommend this book to every teacher. It will clarify many issues and promote many educational initiatives.” —Antonio M. Battro, M.D., President of IMBES, International Mind, Brain and Education Society “Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa has written a highly accessible, extraordinarily well-documented compilation of essential information for all educators. This breakthrough book guides informed decision-making using the best science has to offer to return joy and authentic learning to our classrooms.” —Judy Willis, M.D., M.Ed., neurologist, middle-school teacher, author, and renowned speaker on brain-based education “A fascinating review of state-of-the-art research. It does more than just debunk myths, it also points toward tried-and-true tenets and principles of education. Written with clarity, freshness, and a sense of urgency, this is a book that every educator—and everyone who cares about children—should read.” —Craig Pohlman, author of How Can My Kid Succeed in School? and Revealing Minds

Enhanced recollection can open doors to unconscious thought procesesses and behavior patterns, in the process increasing your ability to cope with problems in daily life. The ability to recall not only the sights and sounds but the smells, tastes, sensations, and feelings associated with past events can help you attain a sense of perception unsurpassed in totality. *Have you ever met someone at a business conference or in a store and spent the fifteen minutes you were talking with him or her trying to remember his or her name? *Have you ever had a word or idea on "the tip of your tongue" and not been able to recall it until three hours later? *Have you ever been given tasks or assignments at work or in school and missed deadlines because you simply forgot about them? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, your memory could be dramatically improved by using the techniques and exercises suggested by Keith Harary and Pamely Weintraub in Memory Enhancement in 30 Days. Even if your memory is fairly reliable, you can still benefit from Harary and Weintraub's exercises as a means of keeping your mind fluid and receptive to new memories.

Brain Gains: So, You Want to Be Your Child’s Learning Coach represents the final link to the first two books of the Brain Smart Trilogy. This third book recognizes the learning challenges children face each day in learning environments defined by mandated curriculums, mandated testing and shortened school years. For example, from kindergarten through high school your child will be responsible for assimilating and accommodating different school curriculums regardless that these mandated curriculums often do not take into account the many cognitive and emotional levels of each student. That is, problems can develop for those children who are not academically at the curriculum’s grade level due to multiple challenges and distractions, such as adapting to the peer group, family dynamics or disharmony (divorce, child abuse etc.), delayed physiological social development and cognitive delays that could cause a life time of learning difficulties. Finally, a major strength of this book is that it offers parents and teachers the opportunity to incorporate learning techniques used by myself and other successful learning coaches and learning specialists that readers can employ for specific student learning challenges. Most importantly, parents and teachers will not only have hands-on learning techniques but their students and/or child will receive knowledge catered to their learning needs they can employ for future learning challenges.

Learning and Memory: A Biological View is a comprehensive textbook about the neurobiology of learning and memory. Topics covered include developmental approaches to the memory process; anatomical correlates of neuronal plasticity; drugs that modulate learning and memory; and biochemical correlates of learning and memory. The link between aging and memory is also discussed, along with electrophysiological approaches to the study of memory. Comprised of 12 chapters, this book begins with a review of historical traditions that influenced research on the biological basis of learning and memory. Experimental findings suggesting that the engram for a simple classically conditioned skeletal response may be in the cerebellum are also presented. The next chapter emphasizes the importance of anatomical mechanisms that could mediate learning, plasticity, and memory storage in young and adult animals. Subsequent chapters explore the influence of peripheral hormones and particularly opioid peptides on complex behavior such as learning and memory; the contribution of individual neurotransmitter systems to learning; the psychopathology of aging; and long-term potentiation as a model of the way the central nervous system stores information. Learning in complex vertebrate systems and direct stimulation of various brain nuclei are also examined. The final chapter presents a neurobehavioral analysis of the structure of memory formation that utilizes lesions and explores human memory pathology. This monograph is intended for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and research workers in the field of memory.
