A prerequisite for successful learning of children is the neurophysiological maturation of the brain, which requires its normal energy supply. In addition, learning occurs most successfully at a certain level of brain activation. There are many stable energy states that provide brain activity at all stages of the transition from rest to stress. The person in the waking state is in one of these intermediate states. The intensity of energy metabolism in this state optimally provides for any particular type of activity. If energy metabolism for various reasons (level of activation of the cortex, features of the blood supply to the brain, etc.) is higher or lower than the optimal level, then the work is not performed in the best way. The situation is complicated bythat the change in the intensity of metabolism affects neurodynamics. For example, under mild stress, hemispheric relations can be inverted, which adversely affects the manifestation of human mental activity. This is especially important to consider when it comes to children, since only the optimal energy state can provide the best learning conditions. There are two interrelated questions: how does the topography and intensity of energy metabolism in the brain affect the effectiveness of various activities in people of different sexes and ages, and vice versa, how does human activity affect energy processes in different areas of the brain?
This section discusses the relationship of cerebral energy processes with learning from younger students. Obviously, training requires certain energy costs. If the existing energy metabolism in abundance provides an educational process, then experimentally such a link is difficult to detect. The relationship between any energy characteristics and learning indicators will be noticeable only when the energy level existing in the brain will be critical for the performance of various tasks. This happens if for the implementation of such work the intensity of the existing energy exchange is insufficient. In any population, due to constitutional and age-related causes, energy metabolism in different areas of the brain in some people may initially be higher (or lower) than in others.In this regard, the success of training, as well as some psycho-physiological characteristics may differ markedly. In this section we consider exactly the situation when the results of a single measurement of SCP are compared with the average performance of students in various subjects and with their psycho-physiological indicators. With such testing, it is possible to identify the basic features of cerebral energy metabolism that are characteristic of this student.With such testing, it is possible to identify the basic features of cerebral energy metabolism that are characteristic of this student.With such testing, it is possible to identify the basic features of cerebral energy metabolism that are characteristic of this student.
The study involved 25 boys and 23 girls aged 9 years, students of secondary schools, who had no neuropsychiatric pathology during a neurological examination. In children, a brain SCP was recorded, which was compared with a number of pedagogical and psychological characteristics. These characteristics included academic performance in the subjects being studied (reading, Russian, mathematics, environmental studies, drawing, physical education and labor education), accuracy of answers, level of attention, various types of memory (auditory, visual, kinesthetic) and integral assessment of memory for all three types, fine motor skills, self-esteem, level of anxiety in relation to adults and students, especially thinking, etc. In addition, height and body weight were measured, as well as health status.
