The working mechanism of brain deals with the learning of surrounding objects to improve cognitive knowledge and motor processing for skill development and happy livelihood. We need the specific parts of our brain to understand the words that someone is speaking. And we would need our brain to decide whether or not we like what we are hearing. We may need our brain to move our muscles to write the required solution of task processing. So brain is the rider of physical body for learning, earning and living.
Learning mechanism of brain science is never utilized in school system to know the subject matter of knowledge chapters. In fact, we need our brain to do a lot of stuff and without a brain, we can’t do much of anything at all. Students are engaged in listening to teaching performance and teacher is everything to solve learning problems in school system. But student’s brain is not encouraged in classroom to practice and learn the required tasks of subject chapter. So, literally speaking, are there really our students as no brainers?
What is the learning mechanism of knowledge chapters that induces neuroplasticity in the working mechanism of brain?
Every time we learn a new fact or skill, we change the physical structure of our brain. This change is retained in brain mechanism for further use and called neuroplasticity. It is the most interesting transformative idea to describe the brainpage theory of knowledge transfer.
Plasticity shows the remarkable amount of reorganization occurred in learning process. Brain research has shown that all of our behaviors change our brain. These changes are not limited by age and they are taking place all the time. Brain reorganization helps in the modulation of knowledge chapters to develop smart brainpage for academic studies and performance.
Neuroplasticity is the ability of human brain to change physically throughout an individual’s life as the result of working, learning and rehearsing practices. Brain activity associated with a given function can be transferred to different location for neural processing. So the proportion of grey matter can change and synapses may strengthen or weaken over time. This is also known as brain plasticity or neural plasticity that helps in the modulation of learning process and memory consolidation.
Neurogenesis is a biological process in which the birth of brain cells (neurons) takes place to enhance the working mechanism of brain. There is solid evidence that neurogenesis occurs in adult mammalian brain and such changes can persist well into the old age. The evidence for neurogenesis is mainly restricted to hippocampus and olfactory bulb, but current research has revealed that other parts of the brain, including cerebellum, may be involved in the production of new neurons.
So, how do students learn? And why do some of students learn subject matter more easily than others?
It is important that brain is physically changed in learning process to maintain book to brain knowledge transfer in school system. In neuroplasticity, our brain can change in five basic ways to support the learning of subject matter.
Chemical change is the first type of neuroplasticity. So our brain actually functions by transferring chemical signals between brain cells and this triggers series of actions and reactions to support chapter learning. The brain can increase the concentration of these chemical signaling ions that is taking place between neurons in the performance of motor skill. This kind of chemical change for motor processing can happen rapidly to support short term memory in the brainpage making process of knowledge transfer.
Five types of brain plasticity essential to the school system :
- Chemical plasticity
- Structural plasticity
- Functional plasticity
- Behavioral plasticity
- Productive plasticity
The second way of plasticity that the brain can change to support learning is by altering its structure. So the brain can change the connections between neurons during learning process. Here, physical structure of the brain is actually changing, so this plasticity takes a bit more time. These types of changes are related to the long term memory.
Brain plasticity can describe five types of neural changes such as chemical change, structural change, functional change, behavioral change and productive change.
For the short term memory, our brain is able to increase chemical signals between neuronal connectivity. Later these chemical changes induce structural changes that are necessary to support long term memory. Structural changes can lead to integrated networks of brain regions that function together to support learning. And it can also lead to certain brain regions that are important for very specific behavior to modulate the smart brainpage of knowledge chapters.
Most important aspect of the plasticity is that the brain can change to support fast learning by altering its function. As we use the specific region of brain, it becomes more and more excitable and easy to use again. With the increase in learning efficiency, we see that whole networks of brain activity are shifting and changing.
Dimensions of brain learnography that are required to the learning process of school system :
- Query matrix
- Definition spectrum
- Task formator
- Segment solver
- Learning compass
- Module builder
- Dark knowledge
The Query matrix of knowledge chapter is crucial to create proper questions for the explanation of suitable subject matter. It may also help to understand the working mechanism of brain.
- How can the neuroplasticity of human brain make learning pathways in the knowledge transfer of school system?
- So, why can’t students learn anything they choose to know with ease?
- Why do our kids sometimes fail in school?
- Why as we age do we tend to forget things? What are the limits of brain plasticity?
- And why don’t people fully recover from brain damage?
Smart matrix of question can activate the amygdala system of brain and this is the first dimension of brain learnography. Chemical plasticity is observed in the application of query matrix and definition spectrum. Second dimension is the definition spectrum of knowledge chapter, processed by the prefrontal cortex and visual cortex of brain.
Structural plasticity is delivered by the practice of task formator and segment solver. Task formator is third dimension and its brain region is sensory cortex. Fourth dimension is the segment solver of knowledge chapter, facilitated by the motor cortex of brain.
Learning compass and module builder can provide space for functional plasticity. Hippocampus gives knowledge compass, the fifth dimension of learnography. Module builder is the sixth dimension of learnography, processed by the modulation of basal ganglia and temporal lobe. We know that left temporal is learning school, while working school is the right temporal of cerebral cortex.
Cerebellum is the lower region of brain that provides the center for behavioral and productive changes. This is the seventh dimension of school learnography and it is also the source of dark knowledge. In this way, the ultimate plasticity of brain occurs in cerebellum to show behavioral learnography in school children. Gradually, behavioral plasticity may be shifted to productive plasticity when cerebellar learnography is modulated with the cognitive functions of prefrontal cortex.
