Abstract

Improving education is a national priority for Kazakhstan. In this respect, we explore the scope of physiological aspects of brain systems to contribute to better educational outcomes. Credit system of education, established in Kazakhstan in 2002, strengthens the role of individual differences of students and focuses on effective methodology accordingly. This fact led us to make a research on students’ Behavioral Inhibition and Behavioral Activation systems and their correlation with students’ personality type , motivation ,fluency and accuracy in foreign language learning. Psychologists have related specific brain activity in humans to differential BIS vs. BAS sensitivities. Individuals with high BAS are described as more subject to reward ; whereas those with high BIS are more subject to punishment. So, we decided to measure this personbased distinction because it has significant implications for the classroom. We believe that educators’ training should include a basic understanding of these neural systems as well as methods for their assessment and improvement of selfregulation in learning.
