WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR OUR FUTURE?
The neuroscience in early behaviour “Recent advances in neuroscience are highlighting connections between emotion, social functioning and decision making that have the potential to revolutionise our understanding of the role of affect in education. In particular, the neurobiological evidence suggests that the aspects of cognition that we recruit most heavily in schools, namely learning, attention, memory, decision making and social functioning, are both profoundly affected by and subsumed within the processes of emotion”.
