Neuroeducation

ISABEL

Acabo de descubrir la existencia de una disciplina reciente denominada 'Neuroeducation' o 'Educational neuroscience'. 
Wikipedia (s.v. educational neuroscience):
Educational neuroscience (also called Mind Brain and Education; MBE) is an emerging scientific field that brings together researchers in cognitive neuroscience, developmental cognitive neuroscience, educational psychology, educational technology, education theory and other related disciplines to explore the interactions between biological processes and education. Researchers in educational neuroscience investigate the neural mechanisms of reading, numerical cognition, attention and their attendant difficulties including dyslexia, dyscalculia and ADHD as they relate to education. Researchers in this area may link basic findings in cognitive neuroscience with educational technology to help in curriculum implementation for mathematics education and reading education. The aim of educational neuroscience is to generate basic and applied research that will provide a new transdisciplinary account of learning and teaching, which is capable of informing education. A major goal of educational neuroscience is to bridge the gap between the two fields through a direct dialogue between researchers and educators"

Hay un par de artículos sobre esto en la wikipedia, muy interesantes (los links abajo), cuya lectura me ha llevado a preguntarme si el aprendizaje de algunas materias, ligadas a lo que se llaman los 'core knowledge systems' (lenguaje y matemáticas, por ejemplo, para los que hay un "sustrato biológicamente determinado") se produce igual que el aprendizaje de otras (como la historia o la literatura). ¿Son los mecanismos psicológicos por los que aprenden matemáticas los mismos implicados en el aprendizaje de historia o literatura?
