Cognitive Neuroscientist: Babies' Brains Aren't A Blank Slate
How we learn is one of the biggest questions many of us face — either for ourselves, our kids, classmates or colleagues.
Stanislas Dehaene argues babies are born with the ability to learn, and instead of their brains being a kind of blank slate, they have the needed circuits and connections already in place.
Dehaene is a cognitive neuroscientist based in France, and author of the new book, "How We Learn: Why Brains Learn Better Than Any Machine … For Now."
Dehaene talked about how we’re somewhat misguided in the way we go about trying to teach little kids.
