Abstract

The basic point of this contribution is to emphasise that in understanding the link between neuroscience and developing educational programmes, we have to do more than pay lip-service to the fact that they operate at very distinct levels of description and abstraction. We should clearly acknowledge that there are at least three levels of relevance here – the biological, the cognitive and the behavioural.
