Hello Folks,

By coincidence, a good friend Bruce McCandliss is visiting Vancouver Island tomorrow.  Bruce is the director of the Educational Neuroscience Initiative at Stanford.  He has graciously agreed to give an informal talk on his recent research "Education and Neuroscience: the bridging power of theta band Steady State Visual Evoked Potentials (SSVEP)”.  The talk is tomorrow (Monday) at 2 PM in the Psychology Reading Room. If you can’t make it in person, you can Zoom in at the link below.  I know it is a holiday but if you are in the mood for a stimulating conversation about how brain science informs education, please join us.

Bruce McCandliss’ Bio -
Bruce McCandliss (https://ed.stanford.edu/faculty/brucemc) currently directs the Educational Neuroscience Initiative at Stanford University, which seeks to forge deeper connections between advances in neuroscience, insights into learner differences, and innovations in educational interventions. This work plays out locally through immersive school partnerships that bring neuroscience labs into schools to collaborate with teachers and learners, as well as within broader collaborative longitudinal brain–imaging studies of thousands of school children. One goal of this work is to bring neuroscience and educational research together to find better ways of understanding variation and innovative support of reading development, mathematics development, the central role of attentional mechanisms in learning, and the critical role education may play in experience dependent brain plasticity.
