Skill, knowledge and merit are the integral parts of student’s life. Children go to school for the learning of subject matter and it is acquired from the teaching performance of prescribed courses. School education is providing the system of conventional learning in which lessons are taught in classroom for the easy understanding of subject matter. The teacher becomes active in blackboard presentation and students remain passive in listening process. This is the theory of comfortable learning in which students are found dependent on teachers for the hardships and challenges of learning process.
Classroom performance is the main aspect of education system and its achievement depends mainly on teaching techniques and chapter presentations. High motivation runs in classroom and student’s amygdala is hijacked during teaching process. Hippocampus of brain becomes paralyzed in high class teaching in which navigation of the learning space is not required to explore the objects, definition and functions of subject matter. Our children are learning in school education with non-functional amygdala and hippocampus like Henry Molaison who had inability to learn new knowledge and make declarative long-term memory. Learning initiative was completely lost and he never showed even conversational initiatives.
How do kids receive the smart modulation of learning mechanism from the amygdala system of brain?
How do they achieve the high regulation of knowledge chapter from the hippocampal compass of brain mechanism?
Neurosurgeon Scoville localized Molaison’s epilepsy to his left and right medial temporal lobes and suggested surgical resection as treatment for the seizures of epilepsy. On September 1, 1953, at the age of 27, Molaison’s bilateral medial temporal lobes were resected in which hippocampal formation and adjacent structures were removed including most of the amygdaloid complex and entorhinal cortex.
His hippocampus appeared entirely non-functional because entire entorhinal cortex was destroyed which forms the major sensory inputs to hippocampus. Some of his anterolateral temporal cortex was also destroyed in that resection.
Molaison’s brain surgery was successful in controlling the seizures of his epilepsy. But he lost the ability of learning mechanism and long-term memory formation.
Although his working memory and procedural memory were intact, he was suffering from severe anterograde amnesia and partially retrograde amnesia. It means he was impaired in his ability to form new semantic knowledge or remember past events a few years before surgery. Molaison’s life became the most intensively studied subject in medical history for the new theories of learning mechanism and memory consolidation.
Learnography is the brainpage theory of learning mechanism based on the amygdala system of brain. I’m working on the learnography of knowledge chapters in which the modulation of brainpage processing has been explained for high speed school learning. I have designed brainpage theory for the academic performance of school system. We must allow our children to express learning initiatives in classroom.
Book to brain knowledge transfer is the brainpage theory of subject matter. This is known as the direct learning of school system in which teaching performance is not necessary and homework is not required. Everything is finished in school hours. Book to brain learning is launched in object language but learning from teaching is done in human language. We must know that knowledge is always created in object language but expressed in human language.
Neuroscience provides the facts and findings of learning mechanism obtained from the study and research of mental or behavioral disorders. Learnography is the subject of applied neuroscience that I have used to develop school system and educational performance. The system of direct school is not very hard and it can be applied comfortably instead of teaching. Subject teacher acts as a chapter moderator to help students in brainpage making process. Smart brainpage of knowledge chapters can transform students into the small teachers of classroom. This is the most fascinating topic of brain learnography.
Book to brain learning is encouraged in the system of direct school and high speed learning is achieved in brainpage making process. Mathematics is a difficult subject for many students, but it becomes comfortable and very easy subject in the modulation of intuitive knowledge.
Teaching is everything in school system. Many projects have been launched to provide improved classroom for quality education, but these attempts are based on the teaching theory of school system. The learning mechanism of neuroscience was never applied to design the architecture of modern school system.
The teacher may be proved as the best task moderator of classroom performance when the learning mechanism of brain is applied in school system. Teaching is the waste of school hours, so new scientific system of schooling should be launched in classroom instead of listening to the teaching.
High class teaching mechanism is not necessary in school system because amygdala is hijacked and hippocampus is blocked in the learning process of classroom. We must learn a great lesson from the contributions of Molaison’s life that amygdala and hippocampus play a significant role in the development of smart brainpage. We know that the temporal lobe of cerebral cortex is the powerhouse of school learnography. In fact, amygdala is the modulator of learning mechanism and hippocampus is the regulator of knowledge chapters.
