Neuroscience, education - neuromyths

Checking this years keynote speakers in various events and conferences, I've picked up on a trending topic of neuroscience. Hilary Leevers, for example from Wellcome Trust is on the topic in Online Educa Berlin, whereas ISLS as Professor Elsbeth Stern from ETH Z├╝rich. Both European and women (for once!), it's great to see that keynotes are not any more dominated by grey males (no offence!).

Welcome Trust has interesting surveys (a survey of teachers and parents, really interesting stuff!) and reports (a literature review on the topic) available on the topic here: http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/Education-resources/Education-and-learning/Our-work/Neuroscience-and-education/WTS040353.htm
