Editorial Reviews

Arthur Costa
“Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa synthesizes a vast, comprehensive compendium of neuroscientific research-based practices into a pragmatic handbook for teachers, featuring vivid descriptions, helpful activities, and easily employed classroom applications.”
Judy Willis
“Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa powerfully presents, as promised, 50 practical applications of Mind, Brain, and Education Science for the classroom. With her background in neuroscience and research analysis, and her knowledge of the needs of educators and students, this highly accessible book will be a valuable source of information and inspiration for all educators.”
Michael Posner
“An excellent job of relating findings in psychology and neuroscience to education.”
Hideaki Koizumi
“The different disciplines covered in the areas of Mind, Brain, and Education are vast. In this very unique book, the author proposes practical applications in the classroom, without compromising scientific validity, successfully creating a bridge between the various disciplines.”
Stephanie Peabody
“This book exceptionally translates up-to-date scientific studies into useable knowledge and practical tools to be utilized by anyone concerned with optimizing learning outcomes in individuals of all ages and within many contexts. A stimulating resource full of solid information for improving learning and understanding.”
Elizabeth Helfant
“This is a must-read for every educator who is willing to question and enhance their practice to deliver a better, research-based curriculum with improved methods for the benefit of their students. It blends learning theory and research (the why) with strategies for clearly identified instructional goals (the how). A worthy goal for every teacher would be to add one of the 50 best practices to their repertoire until they finish the reading.”
Renata Menezes Rosat
“As a true transdisciplinary diplomat, Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa invites us to participate in her ‘interactive feature film’ about MBE Science, bringing education to the center of the fields of pedagogy, neuroscience, and psychology.”
Daniela Bramwell
“This book is fundamental for anyone who cares about increasing the benefits that students can reap from education as well as improving their experience while in school. Teachers, education leaders, policy-makers, graduate students, researchers, parents, and others interested in improving education are extremely lucky to have access to this wealth of up-to-date, research-based information in such an enjoyable read.”
