Book Description:
This book was carried out with the intention of showing the peculiarities of the scientific paradigm of Embodied Cognition (EC) (Gallese, 2005), by highlighting its application in practice (Sousa, 2010), especially in the world of education. The new perspective proves to be significant, mainly due to the importance of learning about brain development in the Evolutionary Age, understanding children and adolescents' behaviors and preventing possible problems at an early age. Moreover, it proves to be significant for highlighting the particular impact that social environment and cultural climate have on learning, as well as on the brain's ability to generate new neurons into older age, along with its changeability (concept of plasticity understood as modeling of the morphology and the function of neural networks mainly induced by experience). These key aspects have led to a multi-perspective view of the human minds' functioning. (Imprint: Nova)
