Hello,

I am currently a primary teacher and I have found that I am really interested in exploring neuroscience and education. I have found an MSc in Neuroscience and Education that I want to apply to in the future but can't currently due to work commitments. I still, however, want to read around the topic. I previously did a music degree (focusing on music and the brain; particularly dementia) and then teacher training so I want to learn more about brain function, anatomy, developmental neuroscience, cognition and how this relates to education. Do you have any reading recommendations, please? Many thanks

In terms of journals, where you might want to peruse the latest articles:
-Child development
-Developmental Science
-Journal of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience (which might be mostly open access)

In terms of textbooks:
- Cognitive Development and Cognitive Neuroscience: The Learning Brain (Goswami)
- Cognitive Neuroscience: The Biology of the Mind (Gazzaninga)

are good places to start
