This is the third and final event in the ESRC-funded Educated Brain series, where education, psychology and neuroscience researchers come together with teachers and practitioners to better understand how we learn, and how we can promote learning across the lifespan through policy and practice. 

This event is supported by the ESRC and Learnus, and delivered in collaboration with three Cambridge Strategic Research Initiatives: Neuroscience, Language Sciences, and Public Policy.


Paul Howard-Jones, (Graduate School of Education, University of Bristol)
