Torkel Klingberg – The Learning Brain (Natur & Kultur)

To combine being one of the world’s leading brain researchers and to write in an easy and understandable way is a skill Torkel Klingberg masters. In The Learning Brain he writes in a simple and vivid way about our working memory and the most important processes going on in the brain during childhood, in relation to children’s learning and development. Humans cannot learn anything new without having the brain involved in the process. We need an arsenal of cognitive tools at hand; we have knowledge of rules in the long term memory, we keep relevant information in the working memory and we are able to perform comparisons between new numbers or letters. In addition, quite a few areas also require motor skills and perceptual memories and skills. The Learning brain is an important read for both parents and teachers.
