abstract

  • In spite of the significant resources devoted to medical education at all levels, the study of educational process has received relatively little attention. Most studies of learning have been observational, with little reference to recent advances in the neurobiology of learning and memory. In this article, the author briefly reviews developments in our understanding of the neurobiology of learning and memory and suggests ways they could contribute to the future evolution of medical education.
