The work offers a conceptual analysis of the brain, considered as the machine for capturing the individual and learning as a process that is acquired during life. The methodology applied in this study was based on the fieldwork carried out in an educational unit, of the city of Manta. In the 2019-2020 school period, where the qualities of the students and teachers were observed, as subjects and primary objects for the study index. The methods applied were qualitative, by the detailed description of the phenomenon of study on behavior, thinking and attitudes; in addition, the inductive-deductive methods have applied, by the study of the general to the particular and particular to the general. Finally, the conclusions have presented on the basis that, neurosciences cover an attractive field that allows knowing the human being internally and externally, how to motivate the individual to achieve success. In the educational field, it was possible to know appropriate strategies and techniques for learning in the classroom, it is necessary that human beings take care of the brain, nourishing it with food energy and knowledge through reading and research.
