Brain holds the huge system of working mechanism for reading, writing and learning. We should have cortical control over what brain wants to satisfy its desire, course, pleasure and achievement. Drug, alcohol, addiction and depression (DAAD) are the call of brain habits to repeat certain pleasing actions in life. These sort of things disturb the potentiality and normal functions of working brain.
The working mechanism of brain is justified by the secretion of chemicals known as neurotransmitters. DAAD is related to the science of amygdala system and can damage the sequencing of bio-molecules by inviting stress or depression in life. Intuitive knowledge is blocked and rational stream becomes paralyzed.
Amygdala tells hippocampus to send stressed stream to the prefrontal cortex of brain for emotional processing. But it is trapped in the infinite loop of regular cycle resulting in suicidal tendency. Amygdala should not be arrested to entertain the infinite loop of pleasure and amusement.
It is similar to the infinite loop of pointer in computer programming. Repetitive work is carried in the loop processing, but system becomes hanged in infinite loop. We must protect our brain from infinite loop by avoiding addictive habits. Meditation and intuitive practices can help in correcting the dirty streams of amygdala system.
Brain learning is divided into two major parts – cortical learning and subcortical learning. Listening, watching or note-taking may give surface learning. It happens in the region of cerebral cortex which describes cognitive science of brain learning. Deep brain learning is the function of unconscious part that is the subcortical region of brain mechanism.
The brain learning of neuroscience is not followed in school system and brainpage is not modulated in learning process. Education provides knowledge, skill and merit so person can get suitable workplace and earning for happy living. Education works on motivation or teaching performance and it can’t activate deep learning process in classroom.
A builder of structure or design multiplies the knowledge for the application of formats and templates. Knowledge chapter is explained in source book for learning purpose. The direct learning of source book gives the modular brainpage of knowledge chapter in which learning ability improves by changing the plasticity of brain mechanism.
The teaching of classroom is the waste of time in which listening is carried out but the structure of knowledge is not built in brain learning. Book is the supreme teacher of subject matter. Textbook gives knowledge for solutions. Then, what’s the use of teaching in school system?
We must trust that the learning mechanism of human brain is powerful to practice the modular tasks of difficult chapter. Children have to study the chapter to write answers for the questions of exercise when teaching is finished.
In classroom, learning should be accomplished in object language. But teaching process gives human language for children’s learning. Object language is the language of skill, knowledge and merit. Knowledge books are modulated in object language and moderated in human language.
Learning in school system is compulsory and it must be retained to face the task of questions in exams. Learning with physical activities provides some resistance to the symptoms of dementia in old age. Intelligence, smart learnography and high earning job may protect people from the mental ravages of old age if brain shrinkage does not happen in life.
When trying to ward off aging, the best kind of learning seems to be the learning of physical skills, especially the learning of something that stretches both the body and the mind. It is fact that our neglect of intensive learning as we age leads the systems in the brain that modulate, regulate and control plasticity to waste away.
Learning a skill that exercises the body has a double effect. It keeps the system that regulates and controls brain plasticity in fine order and also keeps the brain well supplied with oxygen. Learning new motor skills could be a good way of saying mentally young.
Human brain is built for riding, learning and working. Brain riding means to regulate body parts for working or movement. Walking is good exercise to supply food, nourishment and oxygen to the working mechanism of brain. It regulates blood circulation to keep brain and body healthy in working, learning and riding. It also stimulates required protein molecules that keep neurones connecting to make the networks of brain pathways.
No learning, no brain growth !!!
How the brain grows is entirely dependent on what is learnt in the working mechanism of brain. The learning mechanism of brain is described by learnography through modulation process. Therefore, learnography is the learning process of knowledge chapters for school children. Learnography may be introduced in classroom instead of teaching to solve the learning mysteries of school system.
The volume of grey matter in brain increases when the learnography of brainpage modulation is well-finished before tests or exams. White matter of brain also improves because of developed learning pathways. It seems fairly significant to say, “No learning, no brain growth”. It can prevent brain shrinking in old age when people tend to learn less in living by avoiding the practice of physical activities.
Brain growth takes place when something is rehearsed physically for learning and working. Grey matter increases from the knowledge of object learning and white matter improves by the pathway learning of subject matter.
