FONSECA, Vitor da. Importance of emotions in learning: a neuropsycopedagogical approach. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.102, pp.365-384. ISSN 0103-8486.

The article seeks to address the importance of emotions in school learning, bearing in mind that the current school's mission should not focus only on the intellectual development of children and young people, but should also be responsible for their social and emotional development. Regardless of today neurosciences show that emotions have a key impact on learning, many teachers and educational officials, still reveal some uncertainty in incorporating work on emotions in the classroom. Throughout the text are explored questions about the relationship between emotion and cognition in neurofunctional terms when both functions are incorporated in learning, raising various reflections on the teaching-learning process and on the emotional interactions between teachers and students. Finally, some teaching strategies for teachers are advanced and discussed.

Keywords : Emotions; Learning; Neurosciences.
