There are only two more days to receive discounted registration for the next Learning and the Brain conference, “Making Lasting Memories: Using Brain Science to Boost Memory, Thinking and Learning.” It takes place February 12-14 in San Francisco and the Dana Foundation will have a table with free giveaways, so if you’re there, please stop by and say hello!
More on the conference from the Learning and the Brain website:
Neuroscientists are discovering strategies that make learning easier, more effective, and that can boost long-term memory, thinking and academic performance. By using mnemonics, movement, active learning, discussions, gestures and varied practices, teachers can improve their students’ ability to learn, reflect and remember. Discover how the “Science of Learning” can help boost student retention, recall and retrieval of information.
Among the many great speakers are New York Times science reporter Benedict Carey and Dana Alliance member Larry Squire, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine.
The Dana Foundation is a sponsor of the conference.
