Neurocognition and mathetics

It took some time but now the Netherlands are seeing the importance of neurocognition for learning and education. Books, articles and attention in the newspaper do their work. At the University of Maastricht is a new special professor for neuroscience from perceptual learning and attention.
His research focuses on brain processes during observation from stimuli, arriving at the skin and the retina and focusing on how this is modeled through attention and learning.

Research is in cooperation with several Universities, amongst them the University of Coimbra and a Network of European Neuroscience Institutes (ENI)


independent learning

National and local initiatives are seen more often, emphasizing independent learning. The theoretical grounding is not always optimal and connections to a mathetical theory are mainly absent or vague. Here an initiative from the Netherlands: leren leren.
