Neuromyths - myths about the brain - are often used to justify ineffective instructional strategies and teaching. Kelly Macdonald, Laura Germine, Alida Anderson, Joanna Christodoulou and Lauren M. McGrath's findings from this research "suggest that training in education and neuroscience can help reduce but does not eliminate belief in neuromyths."
