Our Missionhttp://jalt.org
The Mind, Brain, and Education SIG is a part of JALT.  It is a forum for language educators and researchers to share insights in neuroscience, bringing relevant new discoveries in psychology, cognitive neuroscience and neurolinguistics into language teaching in Japan. 

Neuroscience is changing language teaching!  

Traditionally, language teaching has been shaped by Linguistics, and as a result, it has been language centered.  Now, neuroscience and psychology are informing us more about learning itself and the learner.  Our goal as language teachers is to find out as much as we can from brain sciences that can improve our practices and teach each other.

The term we will use for our area is NeuroELT.  The Mind, Brain, and Education Movement is best defined by the Venn diagram below.
