London: Scientists have shed light on why it is easier to learn about things related to what we already know than it is to learn about unfamiliar things.
Professor Richard Morris of the University of Edinburgh, who led the study, said: "This curious effect is seen in a specific part of the cortex whose functions are still poorly understood - so there is still much work to be done.""But a combination of biomedical and human brain imaging work has this as a key aim for future research. We also plan to look at how professional knowledge is gradually acquired and organised in the brain," Morris said.IANS
