HEBB'S THEORY OF LEARNING IN COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE
 
Donald Hebb who is the founder of theory of learning behavior from the perspective of cognitive neuroscience based on the cell assembly. Where he explained the occurrence of learning through the Hebb's synapse, which explained the mechanism of interaction and connection between synaptic cells, and the activity that occurs between them to produce learning and related thinking and memory. Also, how the induce that occurs between the cell assembly in the Hebb's synapse has a significant role to understand learning and associated skills, abilities and behavior. Therefore, this theory in the field of education and psychology was employed in the mechanism of long-term Potentiation (LTP) to interpret the occurrence of learning in terms of cognitive neuroscience.
