At the invitation of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Phil Kellman of the UCLA Department of Psychology participated on January 23, 2015 in the White House Workshop on Bridging Neuroscience and Learning.

The White House Workshop on Neuroscience and Learning is an activity of the Interagency Working Group on Neuroscience, a subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council's Committee on Science. The National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences (IES) jointly planned the workshop.

The workshop's goals were to identify research gaps and innovations in research methodology and data analysis, and to generate ideas for effectively disseminating information to the broader public, such as individuals and schools. Kellman was part of the group of about 25 invited experts in neuroscience, cognitive science, developmental psychology and other relevant disciplines who participated in the workshop.
