The Neuroscience of learning

Fixed Mindset vs Growth Mindset
Be Good vs Get Better

  • Potential The capacity to become something or develop into something in the future
  • They are two mindsets according to Dr.Carol Dweck [ Mindset Book ]
  • Fixed Mindset They will do what they  good at and they cannot improve.
  • Growth Mindset They will not good at something yet, but they will be,they will improve.
  • Our Brain is like elastic that we can learn new things untill death
  • If you want to improve compare to yourself not others

The Role of Hippocampus in Learning

  • Hippocampus is like the recording device that takes the learning in and it holds that information and pushes it out to the rest of the memory
  • Focus turns on the hippocampus
  • Maximum Focus time is 20 minutes
  • You need to Learn new things on your own to stick in to the long term memory
  • When you try to solve a tough problem you need to take a break and relax
  • Best ideas come by doing walking, shower, driving etc...,

Best for Learning

  • Feelings tap in to amygdala
  • Amygdala activates hippocampus when you are in danger and also activates hippocampus for Rewarding. In these two stages you will not Focus on anything
  • You need to be in mid stage to focus
  • Games, Sharing with others, Insight/"aha" moment, application/reflection, quiz, light competition are best for learning

Using Retrieval sessions and sleep retain learning

Study today, sleep and study tomorrow on same time learning stick in to long term memory
Here sleep is important for learning and last hour of sleep is most important.
Don't set an alarm for wake up.
Wake up without alarm

Building Habits

Cue -> Routine -> Reward
Order arrived -> process order -> make money

You can motivate only with positive rewards not with negative rewards

If a chick emits the distinctive “cheep-cheep” sound, the mother will care for it lovingly. But if the chick does not, the mother will ignore or even kill it!

For the mother turkey, the sound is a simple shortcut that allows her to quickly and, in most cases, reliably identify its chicks, triggering its maternal instincts. We humans like to think of ourselves as clever, which is why the mother turkey’s shortcut can seem quite foolish to us
