Masson, S. (2015). Neuromyths in education: It's time to bust these widely held myths about the brain. Education Canada, 55(3), 28-31. url: labneuroeducation.org/s/Masson2015i.pdf
Recent studies have shown that teachers often believe in common misconceptions about how the brain works. These neuromyths can be problematic for education, as they may cause teachers to use educational practices that are not entirely compatible with their students' brain function. This article presents and discusses the three most prevalent neuromyths. The first myth pertains to learning styles; the second relates to the notion of being "left- or right-brained"; and the third concerns coordination exercises that improve brain function.
