Neuroscience, . (2018) The Educated Brain Policy Brief for Infancy and Early Childhood (Manuscript)

Abstract:

This brief relates to the first seminar in a series of three around the theme of ‘The Educated Brain’. Each research seminar includes talks from leading
researchers and roundtable discussions about the links between research, policy and practice. Presentations at the first seminar on infancy and early
childhood focused on where interdisciplinary research can make progress in our understanding, with a focus on the developing brain of young children
including: scanning young brains; examining the concept of ‘school readiness’; learning through play; and learning in a stressful environment. Research
shows innovative methodologies and data collection being applied in studies such as tracking children’s movements through play and research-informed
practitioner tools such as the ‘school readiness questionnaire’. We focused on some areas for policy and practice that may be informed by developing
research in education and neuroscience.

Neuroscience, . (2018) The Education Brain Policy Brief for Late Childhood and Adolescence (Manuscript)

Abstract:

This brief relates to the second seminar in a series of three around the theme of ‘The Educated Brain’. Each research seminar includes talks from leading
researchers and roundtable discussions about the links between research and policy and practice. Presentations at the second seminar built on
discussions from seminar 1 by focusing on school years from age 8. Academic presentations covered: inequalities in educational outcomes, researching
the adolescent brain, the role of rhythm in cognitive development, transition to secondary school and bilingualism. The keynote lecture delivered by
Professor Charles Nelson reported on a body of work investigating the impact of early neglect on children and institutional care.
