Mind, Brain, & Education Science



What is MBE?

Mind, Brain, and Education Science is a newly emerging discipline that incorporates developmental psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and educational psychology to answer the question: “How do we learn best?” The answers to this question are found through an intersecting study of the above-mentioned disciplines and their broader fields. The answers will, eventually, come to inform pedagogy, in the hope of creating a learning environment for students that works with the natural functioning of their brains and minds. – The Learning Mind.com
