MISSION STATEMENT
Promote an understanding of neuroscience research within the educational community. We hope to achieve this goal by promoting neuroscience research that has implications for educational practice and by providing a forum for the issues and controversies connecting these two fields.

Discussant Mary Layne Kalbfleisch (Krasnow Investigations of Developmental Learning and Behavior)
Abstract Based on primers written for education researchers on cognitive neuroscience (Kalbfleisch, 2008, 2012) this symposium emphasizes scientific literacy in the education research community. We present multipleperspectives on the educational neuroscience enterprise, the attempt to inform each field of the other’s methods,tools, theories, and research paradigms, to deepen our understanding of the learner in context. This symposiumaddresses the potential consequences of research on structural brain development and adaptive learningcapacities, motivation constructs, and reading and language development for education research with a specialemphasis on how socio-economic status impacts these factors. This panel will provide the audience withpractical, well-articulated information to increase understanding of various issues present in this new applicationof and context for neuroscience.

The Commonality and Diversity Views on Motivation: Accommodating Neuroscientific and Psychological Perspectives
Kou Murayama (University of California - Los Angeles)

 Abstract: Neuroscience research is increasingly coming to inform and constrain the study of educationally relevant problems. A new generation of interdisciplinary scholars is emerging, whose work integrates educational/developmental and neuroscientific evidence. This symposium will showcase high quality and innovative research programs, with the dual purpose of (1) demonstrating the value of connecting education to neuroscience; and (2) exploring the future of interdisciplinary approaches by considering intellectual, pragmatic, and ethical concerns. Speakers address issues in bilingualism, socioeconomic disparity, reading acquisition, social emotions, intelligence, implicit bias, and motivation. Discussion will address how neuroscience contributes to an understanding of these issues beyond behavioral evidence; what the field could not have learned without neuroscientific evidence; and how future directions in neuroscience can be most informative.
