Neuroscience and How students learn

It is the aim of this presentation to explore the conditions under which optimal learning can occur. Our learners’ brains need to change in response to stimuli and produce new neurons in response to it. Effective learning involves engaging multiple regions of the brain as students are presented with challenging tasks.
