how many cells exist in an autopsy of human brain of 2x2 mm? Peter Huttenlocher, Massachusetts: Synapses counts: fetus : 124 million newborn : 253 million 8 month : 572 million
brain plasticity: connections which are not used perish! Torsten Wiesel, D. Hubel (1970s): closing one eye of new born cats Greenough B, Univ of Illinois: ”playground” rats
brain is there to keep us alive Learning is the porcess which ”callibrates” the brain in response to what the environment requires brain is made to learn and learning makes the brain what it is: Interaction and Plasticity Learning is in essense an individual, long, lonely process

Teaching is only one of the factors that lead to learning..! personal factors learning environment teaching
1. help students build associations 2. help students initiate interactions 3. support students on a long term process 4. provide continous feedback Some principles of effective teaching:
May 2007Vilnius Nikos Mattheos 1. learn by building associations
