Researchers in the University of Toronto's neuroscience department are planning to launch a website that will make information about neuroscience and its implications for instruction available to educators this fall.

The website is part of a project called The Adolescent Brain: Implications for Instruction, which will also include a quarterly newsletter and professional-development courses.

Hazel McBride and Michael Ferrari, both researchers with the university's well-known Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, say they're responding to teachers' interest in using research in neuroscience to inform classroom practices.
