Brain Research and the Information Process

Education continues to evolve as research unleashes new developments on the learning process and brain functions.  These findings can create significant changes in the delivery of instruction and also change the perception of educators.  Thomas Armstrong explores the concept of Neurodiversity and the impact it has on addressing students with learning disabilities.  

Scientist and researchers alike have often compared the brain function to that of a computer, with a vast amount of the brain's capabilities left unexplored.  The cerebellum is a prime example of how aspects of the brain have yet to be discovered. Henrietta and Alan Leiner examine the functions of the cerebellum and its effects on the learning process, as they unearth "The Treasure at the Bottom of the Brain". 

New Horizons and John Hopkins University has partnered to produce a site that combines the knowledge and expertise of educators and researchers in efforts to provide "cutting edge information" in the developments of learning and instruction.
