Francisco Mora in conversation with Ana Pais


Arequipa 2021, 

Francisco Mora (Spain) is a Doctor in Neuroscience, a university professor and the author of popular science books such as ¿Cómo funciona el cerebro? (2017) and the bestseller Neuroeducación (2017). His most recent book is entitled Neuroeducación y lectura (2020) and is a passionate appeal, backed by considerable scientific rigour, to the importance of language and reading as well as the essential role played by the emotions in the processes of learning, attention and memory. This book is a cutting-edge view of our relationship with language, reading and education and covers topics as diverse as the chemical composition of the brain, and so human a process as curiosity. In conversation with the BBC Mundo journalist, Ana Pais.
