Learning mechanism of academic knowledge must be transformed into the working mechanism of motor knowledge
The physical activity of learning kids improves certain cognitive functions such as attentional control, inhibitory control and cognitive flexibility. It also enhances working memory, updating capacity, declarative memory, spatial memory, and information processing speed.
The motor knowledge of physical activities can induce neurogenesis (birth of new brain cells) and increase the volume of gray matter in hippocampus. It is associated with measurable improvements in spatial pathway memory and related cognitive functions for high speed knowledge transfer.
In healthy adults, aerobic exercise has been shown to induce transient effects on cognition after a single exercise session. But the persistent effect on cognition is observed by following regular exercise over the course of several months. People who regularly perform aerobic exercise such as running, jogging, brisk walking, swimming and cycling have greater scores on neuropsychological function and performance tests.
Neuroplasticity is the process by which neurons adapt to a disturbance over time. It most often occurs in response to repeated exposure to stimuli. Aerobic exercise such as walking and running increases the production of neurotrophic factors such as BDNF, IGF-1 and VEGF. These factors mediate improvements in cognitive functions and various forms of memory by promoting blood vessel formation in the brain, adult neurogenesis and other forms of neuroplasticity.
Neurological studies have demonstrated that consistent aerobic exercise such as 30 minutes per day induces persistent improvement in the cognitive functions of brain, healthy alteration in gene expression and beneficial forms of neuroplasticity as well as behavioral plasticity. Some of these long-term effects include increased neuron growth, increased neurological activity like c-Fos and BDNF signaling, improved stress coping, enhanced cognitive control of behavior, improved declarative, spatial and working memories.
Consistent aerobic exercise over a period of several months induces clinically significant improvements in the executive functions of brain. It also increases the volume of gray matter in nearly all regions of the brain, with the most marked development occurring in brain regions that give rise to executive functions.
Effects of physical rehearsals on cognition have important learning implications for improving academic performance in children and college students. Motor knowledge also helps in improving productivity at workplace, preserving cognitive function in old age, preventing or treating certain neurological disorders and improving overall quality of life.
Physical activity brings remarkable changes in the structure and function of brain regions. Academic learning of the classroom can be converted into the processing of motor knowledge through physical activities during the learning process of knowledge transfer.
Students must be physically active in the classroom and involve in learning process by using the working dimensions of brain learnography. Motor knowledge of the kid’s brain can promote plasticity in the learning areas of specific brain regions by improving executive functions, cognitive ability and memory modulation.
- Reward and fear systems of student’s brain acting as learning drives in the success of classroom knowledge transfer
- Kids talking too much in the classroom shows the pleasure seeking behavior of learning brain
- Education provides system of indirect schools, not following the working mechanism of kid’s brain
- Education system is solely responsible for the wastage of kid’s 12 years time in the teaching theories of knowledge transfer
- Schools are running without the effective system of knowledge transfer
