  • Learning is the root of individuals’ life-long development and social evolution, as well as the core of human and machine intelligence. The nature of learning is the process of brain change, that is, brain plasticity, of which cognitive neuroscience provides a means to study. The State Key Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning at Beijing Normal University was established based on this concept in March 2005. Its establishment reflects not only the great international fervor towards brain-based learning mechanisms, but also the great attention paid by the long-term science and technology development plan (2006-2020) on the relationship between brain development, plasticity, and human intelligence.
