In recent years, a growing number of neuroscience and education researchers have focused on neuroeducation, an emerging field of research that studies the relationships between the brain, learning, and teaching. However, these researchers are often held back by the fact that a neuroeducational research project requires expertise in both neuroscience and pedagogy. The result of a collaboration between two research laboratories—one devoted to education and the other to neurosciences—has resulted in this book whose objective is to guide the researcher and the student-researcher through the process of research in neuro-education. The educational researcher will find technical information there, particularly concerning the use of brain imaging. The neuroscience researcher will find pedagogical points of reference allowing him, among other things, to understand how the techniques of neuroscience can be applied to solving educational research problems.
