Stress And Learning EDUU 606 DR. HIGH OSAID BANINASOR
Stress And the Brain Inconsistent sensitivity of the memory to interference Under high stress conditions which is the sole player in affecting the memory. Stress alterations in the limbic system underlie the differences in the quality of the memory formed. Emotional stimulating events activate the limbic system and hippocampus is involved in spatial memory formation and the neuroendocrine regulation of stress hormones.
Stress And the Brain Behaviors and changes in hippocampal are mediated by the amygdale. The amygdale modulates memory formation processes in other brain regions under emotionally charged conditions are not required for memory formation but it can influence the effectiveness of its consolidations. the amygdala plays a crucial role in spatial memory formation under stress. The stress-dependent differentiation in limbic system activation patterns motivates differences in the quality of the spatial memory formed.
Stress And Neuroscience The neuroscience combines many sciences, such as biology, statistics, psychology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics. This combined science has expanded psychologies prospective on chronic stress and maltreatment. Neuroscience can create the right model which provides effective, comprehensive, holistic and objective approach towards enhancing academic and social functionality in children.
Stress And Sleep Deprivation Stress is a side effect of sleep disorder. There is an evidence for changes in neurotransmitter receptor related to sleep disorder or deprivation. Sleep deprivation affects neurotransmitter receptor function. Effected areas of the brain and in the hippocampus, do implicate learning and memory.
Impacts & Application As educators we should elevate stress on students as it could charge them emotionally which ultimately will affect the effectiveness of memory formation. We must follow neuroscience and the ECHO model because it addresses all children needs by creating a meaningful sessions and the right activities at the right time in the right place. If we see a students who are showing signs of SD we must address that issue immediately. Encourage students to seek consultation or aid if they develop SD will lead to better learning experience. A well rested student means a better learner.
Conclusion Stress factor is a major contributor in any given environment especially education field and educators must promote a stress free environment for their students to achieve higher.
