Learning is linked to the interactions of human brain functions. Every teacher or person who is linked to education is faced with the need and obligation to know how the human brain works and at the same time stimulate it with techniques and strategies that facilitate the assimilation of teaching. Cognitive processes play an important role in education, this help to interact preconceptions and knowledge with their natural and social environment, including processes in which it involves learning with which we acquire knowledge daily and routinely, whether it gives implicitly or explicitly, it helps to solve diverse situations, establishing logical and adequate connections with the help of reasoning because it conducts a behavioral and cognitive process of concentration that keeps us attentive.
