This article provided a brief analysis of an important human organ and the influences it has on personal and formal learning in the educational field. The specific topics that were investigated are the brain and its importance in learning, characteristics of the hemispheres of the brain learning and the contribution of neuroscience in the teaching-learning process. The first topic mentions how the brain influences learning and the role of memory in that process. The next topic focuses on the characteristics and functions performed by the two brain hemispheres. The latest content deals with the contribution of neuroscience in the educational field, here is detailed on how neural networks combined with the environment where the student performs to make learning possible. The descriptive methodology, based on the review of current bibliographic sources, was used. The purpose of this document is to provide the reader with true and up-to-date sources of information on an organ that integrates complex and necessary ideas for the human being.
