The brain and accelerative learning

James D. Hand

Abstract


The relationship between various types of brain functions and learning has interested
educators for the past 15-20 years. Memory appears to be a phenomenon widely spread
among cortical regions. Both short-term and long-term memory storage are discussed.
Attention is being paid to left and right hemispheric functions as well as to MacLean's
concept of the triune brain. Educators have sought, in recent years, to apply brain
research findings in schooling. Suggestions are offered both to students and teachers,
based upon the research and theories discussed here.
Opvoedkundiges hou hulle die afgelope 15-20 jaar reeds besig met die verhouding
tussen leer en die verskillende soorte breinfunksies. Geheue skyn 'n fenomeen te wees
wat wyd versprei is in die kortikale areas. Kort- sowel as langtermyngeheue en die
retensie daarvan word bespreek. Opvattings oor die linker en die regter hemisfere kry
aandag, sowel as MacLean se konsep van die brein as drie-ledig. Opvoedkundiges poog
vera! in die laaste jare om die resultate van breinnavorsing toe te pas op die onderrigsituasie.
Voorstelle wat gebaseer is op sodanige navorsing word hier gedoen aan
studente sowel as onderwysers.
