The wealth of educational neuroscientific results has contributed to deeper development and reform in education. In the process, however, misunderstandings and misinterpretations of neuroscience results have created an obstacle that has to be addressed - “neuromyth”. The current situation of the prevalence of neuromyth in the education system has seriously affected the teaching efficiency of teachers and the development of students. The current research in this area has not attracted sufficient attention from domestic scholars. Therefore, this study summarizes and compares the literature on neuromyths published from 2012-2022 and conducts a visual analysis to point out the current status and influencing factors of neuromyths and interventions. It concludes with some educational insights and recommendations.

Key words: neuromyth, teacher education, visual analysis, educational neuroscience
