Neuroeducation emerges as a project that is situated in the current debate around what the brain sciences can contribute to education, in a global way

Knowledge of the brain is an unfinished task. We believe that a better knowledge of this organ and its processes, will reinforce the so-called educational sciences, especially to the contributions of Psychology as a behavioral science, and to Pedagogy as a science-art of teaching

We promote a critical attitude towards the ‘fashions’ that we are living around so-called neuromitos, but this should not lead us to include in the neuroscientific field the directions of the different theories that are formulated. We refer to multiple intelligences, hemispheric cerebral dominance, learning styles or mindfulness. Attention, intelligence, language, skills, etc … are shown as cognitive processes that we can study in the 21st century with greater amplitude, in the light of neurosciences

However, the school of this century is not so different from the previous ones, despite the scientific advances, and although today we approach the study of education as a complex system

The flexibility that we attribute today to brain processes (plasticity) and intelligence (abilities) is not shown in the development of our educational system, which we are still constrained by the difficulty of getting rid of a thematic and differentiating distribution
