DESPITE THE ADVANCES IN NEUROSCIENCE, the brain remains a mystery. The development of new technologies and advances in non-invasive techniques to study brain processes (along with massive funding of scientific projects in  neuroscience) have made it possible for us to get a little closer to unraveling that mystery. Among the revealing truths that have been deciphered, the most compelling of all is the irrevocable fact that the brain learns best when emotion is ignited. Cognitive processes and emotional processes are linked. Therefore, there is no better strategy than to ignite the students' passion for knowledge. There is no technique that can supplant what Dr. Nestor Roman calls the "ecstasy of knowledge." Therefore,  education that seeks memorization of knowledge without emotional contextualization is an education destined for failure. If instead of focusing on students learning content, we focus on seeking and loving knowledge, we will be on the way to the greatest revolution ever seen in education.

Anna Forés, Ph.D.  | España Tres14

NEUROSCIENCE,  with its characteristic interdisciplinarity, allows us to create  new learning contexts that align with the principals of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology that explain how to maximize the brain's learning capacity. Neuroscience opened the early debates on traditional education and questioned, on scientific grounds, its effectiveness, giving way to a critical look at the current educational system. It has also forged dialogues between educators and scientists, and is advocating for educational public policies that are evidence-based, open, collaborative, and supported by the most relevant findings from neuroscience and education research. This will definitely make the new paradigms that arise from this dialogue contribute to improving not only the academic level of the students, but also to increasing their level of happiness, thus counteracting frustration, inequality, demotivation and school drop out.
