Neurociencia, Psicología y Educación: control cognitivo y desempeño académico /Neuroscience, Psychology and Education: cognitive control and academic performance

Learning and the Brain

Las redes neurales involucradas en el control cognitivo intervienen en la regulación y la gestión de procesos de memoria de trabajo, autocontrol, focalización, planificación, flexibilidad mental y razonamiento. A su vez, este tipo de procesamiento está asociado a la adquisición de aprendizajes escolares. La investigación neurocientífica en el área sostiene la noción de que este tipo de procesamientos tienen niveles de plasticidad que permiten su modificación por intervenciones tanto experimentales como educativas.

Estos temas son los que serán abordados en una nueva conferencia de Learning & the Brain en el mes de mayo. El programa incluye a los siguientes expositores y temas:
