    Evolution of the Learning Brain

    Or how you got to be so smart


    Howard-Jones, P, 2018, ‘Evolution of the Learning Brain: Or how you got to be so smart’. Taylor & Francis Group


    How do brain regions that first appeared in fishes influence our learning today? How did primates evolve and what does it mean to have a "social brain"? What light does evolution shed on learning difficulties and disorders? How might technology influence how our brains evolve in the future? This fascinating book tells the emerging story of how learning has evolved. It provides a fresh perspective on the nature of human learning and on the educational implications today of a biological history that stretches across 600 million years.
