Neuroeductation and transfer effects from music training to novel word learning, by Mireille Besson

Summary

In France, as in many other countries, there is an on-going public debate on whether and how knowledge issued from neuroscience and cognitive neuroscience can be used to better understand cognitive development and to implement neuroscience-based education methods. In the first part of my talk, I will review and discuss the pro and cons of neuroeducation. In the second part, I will illustrate these issues by showing how knowledge in cognitive neuroscience, as well as in linguistics, musicology and psychology, can be used to study the influence of learning to play a music instrument 1) on novel word learning in children and in adults, and 2) on the development of cognitive functions in children from low socio-economic backgrounds. These different issues will hopefully generate a vivid discussion.
