Minds on Minds

We all have brains, and they're amazing! Join us for a journey through the mind and discover why we learn and behave the way we do.

The Faculty of Education Research Office is pleased to invite you to our first Education-Neuroscience Symposium on May 23, 2014. This event brings together a range of speakers whose research interests span the fields of neuroscience and education.

Our primary aim is to engage researchers in education and neuroscience from across southwest Ontario in direct dialogue regarding Education Neuroscience with an eye towards future collaborations. Education Neuroscience is an emerging field that brings together cognitive neuroscience and education fields to explore the interactions between biological processes and education.

We hope that this event raises awareness of the many areas of inquiry that are open to fruitful investigation of human learning using the techniques and technologies of neuroscience. We hope to see you on May 23.

Podcast: Joel Lopata and Brian Bazett (9:30)

Joel discusses the goals of Minds on Minds and explains his research on finding the areas of the brain responsible for creativity. Hear more intruiging stories at the event or watch the livestream by clicking the link below.
