[Autom. eng. transl.] The integration of neuroscience methods and models in educational contexts can support valid progress in the empowerment of learning processes, thanks in particular to recent developments in the field of so-called social and applied neuroscience. A new approach to cognitive ability enhancement - defined as neurocognitive enhancement - has thus been outlined, integrating cognitive training and training paths with models, methods and tools of applied neuroscience. A neurocognitive enhancement pathway can therefore be described as a conscious and intentional behavior to increase or improve one's cognitive functions (or specific abilities, such as reading) with the help of neuroscientific techniques capable of modulating the activity of brain structures and of neural circuits that mediate these functions and support cognitive performance. In particular, specific techniques such as non-invasive brain stimulation and neurofeedback are today studied with the aim of making a path of cognitive training, functional re-education or training for various cognitive and emotional skills more effective or rapid, while maintaining the person at center of the learning process.
