The Learning & the Brain® Foundation is a non-profit that was founded to help connect neuroscience with education.
The Learning & the Brain® Foundation sponsors the Learning & the Brain® conference series and summer institutes which bring neuroscientists to speak to educators about the latest research on how children learn and learning disorders. The Learning & the Brain® conferences has been the premiere place for educators to connect with neuroscientists and other researchers on learning since 1999.
The Learning & the Brain® Foundation also co-sponsors the annual "Transforming Education through Neuroscience Award"with the International, Mind, Brain and Education Society (“IMBES”). This is a $5,000 award paid annually to a researcher who has made significant contributions to connecting neuroscience with education. The 2012 winner of the award is Associate Professor Daniel Ansari of the University of Western Ontario. Please click here for more information about current and past winners of the award.
