To support this research, the exploratory method of documentary analysis was used for which bibliographic sources were reviewed. The instrument designed for data collection was the survey where results were obtained that concluded that teachers have limitations regarding the conception of diagnostic evaluation because they consider that the contents are not spaces for continuous learning, it does not meet the different styles of learning to determine what need for academic improvement can be applied to each student although the results of a diagnostic evaluation are taken into account for decision-making focused on improving procedures inside and outside the classroom.</p> Miguel Angel Solis Cevallos Carlos Alexander Zambrano Rosado Olga Viviana Torres Terán ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2019-09-10 2019-09-10 3 1 1 10 10.31295/ijhms.v3n1.98 Anthocyanin as neuroprotector for methamphetamine-induced neurotoxicity <p style="text-align: justify;">Methamphetamines are chemicals that might affect brain function and causes the development of addiction and other brain pathologies. It increased dopamine stimulation and would increase the formation of free radicals leading to dopaminergic neurotoxicity. Various therapeutic targets have been developed to prevent or minimize the negative effects of methamphetamine use. Increased level of oxidative stress has been considered as a potential trigger for neurotoxicity hence the expected ability for the administration of antioxidants to prevent damages caused by free radicals. The administration of antioxidants is expected to provide protective effects and prevent further damages created by methamphetamine exposure. Anthocyanin is a type of flavonoid is a potentially effective neuroprotector candidate for preventing neuronal cell death reduction, and this compound works with various mechanisms.</p> Putu Asih Primatanti I Made Jawi ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2019-09-17 2019-09-17 3 1 11 16 10.31295/ijhms.v3n1.101 Brain and emotions on learning process <p style="text-align: justify;">The objective of this research was to describe how the brain is fundamental in the teaching-learning process. This analysis has performed considering the importance of neuroscience and its influence on education, another important issue is emotions as stimuli for meaningful learning.</p> William Ecuador Martínez Albán María José Briceño Ruperti Dubal Edison Salvatierra Tumbaco María Elena Moya Martínez ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2019-10-08 2019-10-08 3 1 17 20 10.31295/ijhms.v3n1.108 Neuroscience role in education <p style="text-align: justify;">Education is the path that facilitates the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and abilities, the research aimed to study the brain and learning a fundamental role in education, it addresses motivation, memory, and intelligence for learning classroom. 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.</p> María Mercedes Lopez Lopez Juan Carlos Espinal Herrera Yiria Giovinezza Macias Figueroa Paola Katherine Moreira Sanchez ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2019-10-08 2019-10-08 3 1 21 28 10.31295/ijhms.v3n1.109
