BBSN 4000: Cognitive Neuroscience & Education

Using cognitive neuroscience as a conceptual framework, this course examines educational practices as they apply to reading, writing, and mathematics. Students learn the basic brain structures that contribute to developing these academic skills and how experience interacts with these structures.
