Inside the Brain of a Five-Year-Old

Claudia Hammond investigates the workings of five-year-old brains. Does neuroscience have a place in the classroom? From 2010.

Claudia Hammond investigates the latest research into the working of the five year old brain, and asks whether the latest developments in neuroscience might have an application in the classroom.

Could a deeper understanding of brain development help educationalists get better results- and if so how can teachers separate the brain fact from so much of the brain fiction which seems to be out there?

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in March 2010.
