Description

Research in Mind, Brain, and Education cuts across and unites areas of Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) to introduce foundational and emerging topics in the field. With chapters written by leading scholars, this book offers empirical research on specific topics including autism, math, reading, and emotion, as well as conceptual guidance on the role of models and epistemological considerations relevant to MBE. Each chapter seeks to provide a platform for exploring questions, tools, and models central to current work in MBE by emphasizing investigative focus and influences. Designed both as a supplementary text for advanced undergraduate or early graduate training and as an introduction for educators, researchers, and policy makers, Research in Mind, Brain, and Education showcases the collaborative, innovative, and dynamic approach to research that is fundamental to the discipline.

Reviews

"How do you introduce and take the impulse of an important and complex new area of research and practice? In this pioneering and distinctive volume, leading scholars take readers into the heartland of "Mind, Brain, and Education:" Sharing their personal research journeys, the authors present theoretical frameworks, key concepts and methods, and empirical findings that encompass the academic curricula, affective experience, and key differences among learners."

--Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education, USA
