Understanding (and thus, in the author’s view, learning) is an intense pleasure for the human brain, particularly in children, from a very young age … and even at school, if possible! Albert Einstein is said to have considered it a miracle that curiosity in young human beings survives school. Unfortunately, there seems to be at least some grain of truth to this pessimistic stance. Can neuroscience help us maintain or even develop this wonderful human characteristic? If yes, how? If not, why? If ‘maybe’, where to draw the line?
