brain, infant education, learning, memory, neuroscience


It is intended to carry out a tour about the influence of neuroscience in early childhood education. It is important that all teachers, especially those working with infants, can know the fundamental principles of neuroscience and how the brain learns; thus have sufficient resources for decision making in school classrooms. This research paper attempts to make an introduction about the topic to be addressed and its focus on early childhood education.
