SIG Purpose


The purpose of the Special Interest Group on Brain, Neuroscience, and Education (SIG-BNE) of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) is to lead and promote the design, implementation, and dissemination of empirical and theoretical work that articulate how brain and neuroscience knowledge can inform knowledge about education - and  vice versa. 

To this end, we seek to support members in identifying, using, and producing high-quality, evidence-based information about topics at the intersection of education, neuroscience, psychology, and other learning sciences. 

The SIG-BNE aspires to be the “go-to” place for real dialogue between brain researchers, cognitive scientists, and educational researchers, so that our colleagues around the world can share ways to improve cross-disciplinary research necessitated for this dialogue.
