Learning can be characterized as altering and strengthening neural connections and networks in the brain. Cognitive neuroscience provides us with a large literature related to the structures and functions of the brain. As our knowledge of neuropsychology and learning increases, so does the opportunity to pattern more successful educational practices. However, taking advantage of these scientific developments requires integrating understanding from many fields, from sociology, psychology, developmental and learning sciences, and linking them to knowledge of emerging successful approaches in education. In addition, the brain's incredible ability to change and adapt (neuroplasticity), that is, the real physiological adaptation ability that occurs in the brain when it interacts with the environment, can have a huge impact on special education, especially in the area of ​​learning difficulties. This review summarizes neuropsychological studies on dyslexia in general.
