Your Brain on Learning

CLO Magazine

When the brain learns, it acquires information through a person’s various senses, and this information travels along the synapses to the short-term memory. After the information has been processed in working memory, it is carried to the brain’s core where it is compared with things we know or have experienced, and then stored in long-term memory. But only in roughly the past decade have conversations on how the brain learns appeared in talent management circles.
