Neuroscience Making Strides in Education Research | Education News:


Neuroscience is finally finding its footing in the field of education with a new study thatseeks to determine how much of the learning process is hardwired into our brain. By mapping the areas of the brain that are active while learning is taking place, scientists have been able to determine that the organ actually makes adjustments as the person gains experience, showing much greater flexibility than the scientists initially suspected. Contrary to the conventional view that sees the brain like a telephone switchboard, it actually acts more like a language. As children develop, they acquire the basic building blocks – letters – that, with experience, they learn to combine those blocks, hardwired into the hippocampus, into words, sentences, and more complex structures.
