Page: 654-671 Author: Flobakk, F. R. Key words: educational research, educational neuroscience, reconsideration, transdisciplinary research
Educational neuroscience is a cross-disciplinary field where researchers work at the interface of education, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience. Certain difficulties arise in the merging of the disciplines as a result of differences in the traditions’ philosophies, methodologies, theories, and practices. Critical consideration of the ‘bridging project’ is essential for the development of educational neuroscience, but I will also argue that questions arising in the wake of this cross-discipline are relevant for reconsidering educational research.
