This is what we wrote about the conference:

Talk about neu­ro­science applied to edu­ca­tion: we will be report­ing from a fas­ci­nat­ing con­fer­ence in San Fran­cisco, Feb­ru­ary 15–17, titled Learn­ing & the Brain: Enhanc­ing Cog­ni­tion and Emo­tions for Learn­ing And Stu­dent Per­for­mance, spon­sored by lead­ing uni­ver­si­ties and the Dana Alliance for Brain Ini­tia­tives.

  • Speak­ers include a truly “Dream Team” of neu­ro­sci­en­tists and edu­ca­tors such as Michael S. Gaz­zaniga, William C. Mob­ley, John D.E. Gabrieli, Robert M. Sapol­sky, Robert Syl­wester, and many many oth­ers. You can check the pro­gram here
  • The descrip­tion of the event is: “Use this explo­sion of sci­en­tific knowl­edge to cre­ate new, pow­er­ful par­a­digms for teach­ing and health­care. Cutting-edge dis­cov­er­ies in neu­ro­science may soon trans­form edu­ca­tional and clin­i­cal inter­ven­tions by enhanc­ing mem­ory and cog­ni­tion. Dis­cover the influ­ences of emo­tions, gen­der and the arts. Explore new ways to enhance cog­ni­tion and to assess poten­tial ben­e­fits and pit­falls of using phar­ma­col­ogy, tech­nol­ogy and ther­apy to boost performance.”
