About Dr Annie Brookman-Byrne

Before becoming a science writer and editor I used behavioural, neuroimaging, and classroom methods to examine the cognitive and neural bases of science and maths reasoning.

Replying to Gabrielle Ahern

I like the film. I think it is written and presented beautifully. I am sure it will initiate a lot of discussion from teachers and parents, to understand the science of being a teenager a bit better. 

Thanks Gabrielle! We are so happy with it and hope it will lead to the sharing of useful strategies.

Great article Annie - I'm forever trying to dispel the 'Learning Styles' myth, not sure the message will ever get through but I'll share this out to a few places in either case!

Thanks James! It would be great if you could share widely, thanks very much. It's quite astonishing how pervasive the learning styles myth is. Let's keep up the effort in dispelling myths!

Hi Phil. I had heard about Lumosity being fined, so am glad to hear that this seems to have had some impact on what is being advertised. I haven't come across SEN Magazine before so will definitely check it out, thanks.
