On Tuesday, April 2, President Obama announced his proposal to spend $100 million on a human brain mapping initiative that would financially support brain-related research and efforts to combat Alzheimer's, autism, epilepsy, and paralysis, among other things.

Our guest, Dr. Jessica Phillips-Silver, is a neuroscientist whose specialty is the science of young brains. She will talk to us about what the President's brain mapping initiative means for students, and she'll also talk about the impact of such things as music and Montessori instruction on children's brains.
