The goal of this special issue is to collect a series of papers that address key aspects of Education and Neuroscience.

Submission Deadline: 30th May 2011

The special issue will contain papers that report new empirical data acquired using neuroimaging and neurophysiological techniques. The editors will consider papers that report data which may not be strictly developmental, but which have relevance to development and implications for educational neuroscience and learning in an educational setting. Please note that papers reporting purely behavioural data do not fall within the remit of DCN and will not be considered.

Thanks in advance for considering this.
