About the Author

Paul Howard-Jones specialises in interdisciplinary research involving neuroscience and education, publishing in education, philosophy, psychology and neuroscience. His research, whether using educational, psychological or neuroscientific methods, is grounded by considerable past experience in the training and professional development of teachers. In 2005-2006, he coordinated the UK's ESRC seminar series on Neuroscience and Education, authoring the popular commentary that arose from it. He is also the author of the recently published Introducing Neuroeducational Research: Neuroscience, education and the brain from contexts to practice (2009). He is a passionate contributor to the general debate around neuroscience and education in educational, scientific and public arenas, but his more specific research interests include creativity, educational technology and learning games. He co-ordinates the NeuroEducational Research Network (NEnet) at the Graduate School of Education, University of Bristol, UK.
