Dartmouth awarded $21.8 million NSF grant

An interdisciplinary group led by Dartmouth researcher Michael Gazzaniga has received a $21.8 million National Science Foundation grant to establish the Center for Cognitive and Educational Neuroscience (CCEN), as part of NSF's new Science and Learning Center (SLC) initiative. Researchers and students involved in the CCEN will work to understand the brain mechanisms of learning as well as build collaborations to implement learning techniques among K-12 students and teachers.

This five-year award, which may be renewed, represents the largest peer-reviewed research grant ever made to Dartmouth College.

"We want to build bridges between the researchers who study brain activity involved in learning and the teachers who need a deeper understanding of learning processes," says Gazzaniga, the David T. McLaughlin Distinguished Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences and the Director of the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience. "Our goal is to carry out basic research on how people learn and to connect scientists with the practitioners to effect meaningful change in the lives of students."

Dartmouth's SLC, the Center for Cognitive and Educational Neuroscience (CCEN) draws from numerous faculty experts and benefits from strong community collaborations. The new center blends research initiatives with outreach activities to capitalize on existing partnerships and forge new relationships that resonate throughout the academic communities, for K-12 students, parents, teachers and their counterparts in higher education.

"Dartmouth is pleased to play a role in developing this critical NSF initiative," says Dartmouth President James Wright. "We salute the leadership of a committed group of faculty, led by Professor Michael Gazzaniga, in advancing this project. It will meet an important national need and will build upon Darmouth's strengths in the brain sciences, our interdisciplinary culture, and our commitment to learning and teaching." '"/>
