"I'm hoping that we can really make rich conceptual advances for the role of emotion in learning and in education, because educational settings are social ones. The emotions that people experience in those settings shape the way that they engage with what they are learning."– Dr. Mary Helen Immordino-Yang

Dr. Immordino-Yang, assistant professor of education at the Rossier School of Education and assistant professor of psychology at the Brain and Creativity Institute, University of Southern California, is a cognitive neuroscientist and educational psychologist who studies the brain bases of emotion, social interaction, and culture and their implications for development and schools.

Dr. Abigail Baird

"Neuroscience is a complimentary field. You know, you shouldn't hear something in neuroscience that doesn't make any sense to you. It shouldn't be something that's completely nonsensical... When you read a neuroscience finding, you should be able to think of three or four practical examples that you yourself have witnessed." – Dr. Abigail Baird

Dr. Baird is an assistant professor of psychology at Vassar College. Her research interests include the integration of emotion and cognition across development, with a particular focus on neural development during adolescence.

Now a faculty member at the Harvard Graduate School of Education he teaches a course on educational neuroscience. He is a research scientist designing next-generation learning environments at CAST (the Center for Applied Special Technology). Dr. Rose was a post-doctoral fellow with the Laboratory for Visual Learning (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), where his work included NSF-funded research on the link between dyslexia and visual abilities in astrophysics.

"I think the notion of mind, brain, and education is to be equal partners. The important issues that affect how children learn don't live in any one discipline... there needs to be a conversation across disciplines, and... as that conversation happens, first of all, we all have a lot to learn from each other, and more importantly, we can all be more effective in how we do our jobs." – Dr. Paul Yellin
