The conference provided a forum to explore exciting new advances in the emerging field of Mind, Brain, and Education. In the spirit of encouraging and supporting collaborative efforts among cognitive scientists, developmental scientists, neuroscientists, and educators, the IMBES conferences created a promising environment in which committed researchers and educators together offered new insights into behavior and the brain that informed both educational practice and new scientific investigations.
