The Science and the Neuroscience of Education

 

The Next frontier – Neuroscience of Education

Adriana BRAESCU Abstract The recent advances in neuroscience and the educational research may work together – a neuroscientific perspective adds a new dimension to the study of learning, and educational knowledge could direct the neuroscience research towards relevant areas. Researchers and educators may work together to identify educationally-relevant research goals and discuss potential implications of research results. Educational neuroscience is necessary for defining a real science of learning. This could be entitled the “neuroscience of education”, based on some of the current issues associated with bioinformatics or neuroinformatics and fMR imaging. The neuroimaging methods could be a valuable tool in the process of understanding the cortical processes that undergo learning.

Abstract Learning should be a natural, pure and joyful experience – even in schools, if we take into account that the old English scōl, scolu, came via Latin from the Greek skholē, which means leisure, philosophy, lecture place (according to the Oxford Dictionaries). Many people think that Math, or Programming, or Art are tough jobs, that require special talent or dedication. They are taught, in schools or otherwise, that they use only some specific types of intelligences, and the others are simply switched off – which is not true, as neurosciences try to prove for some time, since neuroimaging took its turn in the investigation methods of the brain function.
