What I know now about how the brain works. Cognitive science – how the brain works – is quite important to teaching and learning. So why is it that it’s only been in the last three years of my career (which started in 1996) that I’ve learned anything about it?  I am certainly not an expert. My science qualifications go up to GCSE level. You would think that a postgraduate certificate in education would include something on the functioning of the organ that the job is primarily concerned…

Diagram of a chemical synapse showing voltage-gated Ca2+ channels, voltage-gated Na+ channels, and voltage-gated K+ channels in the presynaptic membrane. Ligand-gated ion channels are shown in the postsynaptic membrane.

Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers secreted by neurons that activate an adjacent cell. Neurotransmitters are secreted into a synaptic cleft, rather than into the bloodstream.
