RAMOS, Angela Souza da Fonseca. Brain-Based Learning is confirmed by recent data in Neuroscience. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2014, vol.31, n.96, pp. 263-274. ISSN 0103-8486.

Neuroscience is essential for understanding learning and memory, but little is known about its application in education. The Brain-Based Learning methods present brain based technics used in order to improve learning, but this approach has not been appropriately divulgated in the Pedagogy and Psychopedagogy areas. Here, we revise the principles of Brain-Based Learning and correlate to recent data of Neuroscience. The principal aim of this review article is present the Neuroscience new insights and correlate to the pedagogic praxis. In this work, we show that the neural plasticity is crucial for the learning and it occurs in all ages of humans. Here, the motivation, including molecular studies of the effect of reward and reinforcement, is related to the learning. This article shows studies about stress, where moderate stress improves learning, in opposition to the current opinion. In school lessons, the use of technics with various sensory accesses, for example, audio, visual and textual presentations, is very common. This approach has been confirmed by scientific studies, which show that multisensory congruent stimulus improve the learning. The basic principles of the Brain-Based Learning are related to the most recent data in neuroscience, as shown here. The expected outcome of this work is to contribute for the modus operandi of the Pedagogy in such way that the students and their cerebral functioning are the principal point in order to learning become more pleasant and efficient.
