Education in its most general sense is a form of learning in which knowledge is imparted from one source to another. The delivery of education and the testing of its impact has been an ongoing human endeavour for many years and ideas on how to manage education have largely resulted from theories of education. The acquisition, storage and retrieval of learned behaviours result from brain activity. Using a variety of experimental approaches, studies in neuroscience have been considering the issue of the physiological mechanisms that mediate learning and memory formation and its retrieval. These studies are not only providing insight into the basic physiological and molecular mechanisms that underpin learning but also some surprising findings on the impact of the environment and presentation state on learning and recall of learned events. In this session, I will discuss current ideas of learning and memory formation in the mammalian brain and possible implications for education practice.
