The concept of brain-based education has fascinated educators and researchers for years.  Even parents and students are interested to know how to “optimize” our brain for learning. With the rapid advancement of neuroimaging techniques, a new research discipline, educational neuroscience, has emerged in the last decade. Nevertheless, some have argued that the gap between neuroscience research and education is too far to bridge. In this seminar, we will examine some of the major discoveries in educational neuroscience and how these findings can be translated into education practices. We will also discuss the challenges and future direction of brain-based education.
