Working mechanism of brain provides us unique ability to understand the advancement of science and technology. Human brain is the organ that is responsible for emotional processing and rational practices. It is basis for thinking, feeling, wanting and perceiving. We have to depend on the neurological functions of brain for learning, memory, curiosity and behavior. Memory is the fundamental aspect of knowledge in learning process and without memory we are capable of nothing but simple reflexes and stereotyped behaviors.
It is important that the mechanism of learning and memory is one of the most intensively studied chapters in the field of neuroscience. It is essential to put the line of demarcation between educational teaching and brain learnography. We have to understand the basic differences between teaching theories and learning mechanism of brain. It is necessary to change the conventional teaching of knowledge transfer in school system.
Transformation of knowledge is the main aspect of knowledge transfer in school system. Object knowledge is transformed into the emotional knowledge of brain. It is processed in the amygdala system of brain and then projected to prefrontal cortex for the processing of rational knowledge. This is the center of high order functions and cognitive development. Big ideas are generated in the rational thinking of facts and events but motor knowledge is productive related to the value and quality of knowledge transfer.
We like to think of great ideas because we have such big brains, humans are exceptional in evolutionary hierarchy. Our billions of neurons are keys to memory, feelings and consciousness. The cerebrum and hippocampus of brain are considered important for declarative memory while cerebellum plays a vital role for finger mapping and procedural memory.
A person speaks with facial expressions and exhibits finger and body gestures to motivate the audience. Finger mapping of the presenter is observed when lecture is delivered in conference hall. The speaker collects ideas and facts on brainpage and speaks to the audience with finger pointing, face and body gestures for effective presentation.
It is remarkable that finger speaks, body speaks and face also speaks while performing the presentation of subject matter. It also happens in classroom when a teacher describes the chapter on blackboard. This is the motor knowledge of learnography known as living and dynamic blackboard effect, LADBE. That is why the final learning of knowledge chapters is the development of LADBE demonstrated by the unconscious operation of brainstem and cerebellum.
How is the brain connected with peripheral receptors and muscles?
The upper limbs of human body have the advanced and complex network of nerves in brachial plexus. The last four cervical spinal nerves such as C5, C6, C7 and C8, and the first thoracic spinal nerve T1 combine to form the brachial plexus of upper limb. This is a tangled array of nerves splitting, combining and recombining to form the nerves that regulate the functions of upper limb and upper back. Although the brachial plexus of nerves supply may appear tangled, it is highly organized and predictable with the precise and productive movement of hand fingers.
It is fact that knowledge transfer is everything in school system and educational performance. We humans have unique ability to interact the world around us using our upper limbs. Precise motor maps created in the brain enable us to move specific muscle groups in discrete ways needed to perform book to brain knowledge transfer in learning process. Sensory information from our fingers also allows us to explore the world through touch and learnography.
In ancient civilization, stone tools were discovered by the hands and fingers of human beings. Our upper limbs are evolved to position our hands in space for use as sensory perception and motor processing. This requires precise muscle movement and precise control over those muscles. To understand the motor processing of knowledge transfer, it is essential to explore the evolution and development of brachial plexus, the nerve bundle that makes this unique human experience possible.
Whatever knowledge we learn in school system or at workplace, it is ultimately transformed into the motor knowledge of learnography. The learnogram of brain receives the inputs of knowledge and its learning comes out as voice interpretation and finger mapping. The behavior of genius activities is distinct in the cerebellar learnography of brain, ultimate learning of science and technology. Learning dimensions of brain should be used to modulate and make smart brainpage in school learnography.
Everything is learnt in brain, so the working mechanism of brain is found effective in knowledge transfer. Classroom performance must be launched on the basis of learning mechanism using the facts and findings of applied neuroscience. Amygdala system of brain becomes rationalized while asking questions. We know that students are given a set of questions in exams to write answers from brainpage. The matrix of knowledge transfer is acquired from the practice of definition spectrum and objective queries.
