Abstract:

Study at school, as a physiological process, represents a gradual formation of a complex chain of conditioned associations in the cerebral cortex, with the participation of the primary and secondary signal systems. To the cortical analyzers of a child, who first familiarizes himself with the alphabet all letter-symbols appear as stimuli of a uniform character generalization. Only later, by means of the development in the cortical cells of positive, differentiating and integrating conditioned associations, does there appear the ability to recognize letters and the creation of habits of word formation, reading, and writing.
