The core of the education is to develop a sound brain. Recent studies of brain sciencemay inspire teachers to guide children with effective strategies through a neurophysiologyperspective. Therefore, this article which introduces brain science from micro to macrolevel illustrates physiological mechanism of brain learning, and describes the developingproperties of the brain.
