From a biological viewpoint, learning and education are closely related to brain development because the brain is an adaptable information processor open to the environment. Stimuli from the environment cause new neuronal connections. Therefore, learning is the process in which the brain reacts to stimuli by making neuronal connections that act as an information processing circuit and provide information storage similar to a database. On the other hand, education is a process that should guide and inspire the construction of the basic architecture of brain information processing by preparing and controlling the input stimuli to the brain.
