Educational neuroscience in the near and far future: predictions from the analogy with the history of medicine
Thomas, Michael S.C. (2013) Educational neuroscience in the near and far future: predictions from the analogy with the history of medicine. Trends in Neuroscience and Education 2 (1), pp. 23-26. ISSN 2211-9493.
Educational neuroscience is an emerging field that, proponents argue, holds great promise for the future of education. Several commentators have drawn an analogy between what neuroscience might contribute to education in the future, and what science has historically contributed to medicine. In this article, I pursue the analogy in greater detail, in order to provide a glimpse of the possible implications of the discipline for education.
