Summary
"Forced learning, or "hot-housing", of infants has become increasingly popular in recent years - but does it work? The plasticity of the adolescent and adult brain is becoming acknowledged by brain scientists. What does this say about lifelong learning? In this groundbreaking book, two scientists take stock of what is now known about how and when the brain learns, and consider its implications for educational policy and practice." "This landmark book will be of interest to students of psychology and education, teachers, psychologists, educational policy makers, and parents."--BOOK JACKET
