Brain Research and Learning

Contemporary research on brain development is revolutionizing our understanding of learning, memory, health, and human change. How does this revolution affect our professional practice with people? How does a person who is not a neuroscientist sort out what is useful from the torrent of headlines, articles, and books on the brain? How can we tell the myths and the overhyped fads from the solid understanding that can inform our practices and help us become more effective practitioners?

University of Vermont’s Continuing and Distance Education, College of Education and Social Services, and Department of Psychological Science offer several courses to help answer these questions and inform professional practices with children and adults in a wide range of professional fields.
