Cognitive Neuroscience of Learning Meeting and Grant Opportunity

For those of you interested in how cognitive neuroscience research is being used to enhance teaching methods, the New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS) is collaborating with the Aspen Brain Forum Foundation to hold the conference, Cognitive Neuroscience of Learning: Implications for Education. The Dana Foundation is a promotional partner for the event, which will be held in Aspen, Colorado from September 22-24.

Paired with the conference is the opportunity to compete for two prizes of $7,500 in unrestricted funds “to recognize innovation and excellence in translating discoveries from developmental cognitive neuroscience into new curricula or tools that enhance learning.”

According to the NYAS website, the two prize categories are (1) young investigator (at the post-doc/assistant professor level) and (2) senior scientist. Applications are due on July 29 and awards will be announced at the conference. For more information, please visit the NYAS website.
