Cognitive science is the basis of coaching.

Cognitive science is an interdisciplinary field that seeks to understand the mind, such as psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, philosophy, computer science, and anthropology.


Tomabechi-style coaching is based on cognitive science and stands in the position that mind, brain and mind have the same meaning.


Dr Tomabechi is still active as a Fellow at Carnegie Mellon University and has spread the results of his extensive research with the legendary American coach Louis Tice.


Louis is the legendary owner who went to the scene of the Irish conflict, including the presidents of various countries around the world and settled the conflict.



Dr Tomabechi participated in the Tice-style coaching of Louis Tice, put in the knowledge of cognitive science, and completed the current coaching.


Dr Tomabechi is the successor to Thaïs and is the leader in Thaïs coaching.


I have been certified in Tomabechi style and Thai style.


Cognitive science studies psychology and processes of humans and other organisms in learning and problem-solving.


Cognitive science is related to psychology, but psychology is not considered scientific, so I think we often use the terms "brain" and "nerve".


Neuroscience studies which brain parts are ignited by specific actions, such as scanning the brain with fMRI and reading a book. They may also incorporate the results of this research into cognitive science.


The method of scanning the brain with fMRI to observe the firing state of the brain has made considerable progress, but I think that it is not enough to generalize it and apply it to learning.


Currently, what is called a scientific learning method is mainly due to the achievements of cognitive science.


Cognitive science is an interdisciplinary discipline, so I think there is a slight temperature difference depending on where the researchers are focusing.





At first, I felt uncomfortable with including philosophy in cognitive science. The philosophy I had in mind was in the following world, so I didn't think it had anything to do with the science of the brain.

  • Kant's intuition a priori form, subject,

  • Hegel's absolute spirit, essential moments of consciousness, phenomena, energy, experience, sensations, language, demonstrable hypotheses, scientific conditions, falsifiable theories

  • Heidegger's existence itself is a problem; the existence of "existential", the hermeneutics world, comprises "relationships".

However, in contemporary philosophy, it seems to be different from this image, such as using mathematics and explaining with mathematical formulas.


I haven't studied how philosophy has changed yet, but it's an area of ​​interest.


We must remember that the relationship between cognitive science and computer science is that research on artificial intelligence contributes significantly to cognitive science.


Attempts to replace the human brain with machines have been the subject of research by many ancient scholars and seem to have made great strides in AI research.


Various algorithms have been created since around 1970. Still, due to the large capacity and high hardware speed, they have come to be put into practical use as image processing and utilization of big data.


I've come to hear the word AI a lot, but I'm just saying AI is for image processing and big data, and the brain of the actual population hasn't been created yet.


However, during the time of President Obama, large-scale brain research on the brain in the United States, called the Brain Initiative, was launched to elucidate the entire structure, function, and information processing mechanism of the brain.


Except for the Brain Initiative homepage, you'll find exciting research. (Although it is in English, I use translation software to read it. It is not accurate, but I can understand the outline.)





Finally, I would like to introduce how the brain works for learning.


John J. Medina is a developmental molecular biologist specializing in the isolation and characterization of genes involved in developing the human brain and the genetics of psychiatric disorders.


He will introduce the "Brain Rule", which organizes the mechanism of the brain for the general public in an easy-to-understand manner.


Five brain rules that affect how people learn and work in the workplace

  1. Every brain has different wiring.

    1. The physical wiring of the human brain is constantly changing as we do and learn something. No two people have the same brain. The brains of individual learners, individual employees, and individual customers have different wiring.

  2. People ignore boring things.

    1. People anticipate what to pay attention to based on their previous experience. People are specially designed to pay attention to emotions, threats, and things they have never seen before.

  3. The brain can't multitask, but today's workplace is full of elements that encourage multitasking, such as email, phone calls, and text messages.

    1. Memories tend to fade and need to be repeated to establish a memory.

    2. The information that the human brain can hold in the short term is minimal. That information needs to be repeated many times for long-term memory. If you want to remember something, repeat the related information in your mind (for example, if you want to remember a person's name, think about that name and the colour of your clothes, etc.).

  4. One cannot tolerate long-term stress.

    1. The human brain can only withstand stress for about 30 seconds. Further stress can adversely affect cognitive activity, motor function, and immune function. So the stress you experience at work affects your work performance.

    2. One is designed to learn and explore constantly.

  5. People's quests will never be lost. Infants, in particular, are actively trying to observe, hypothesize, experiment, and draw conclusions rather than passively reacting to the environment.

    1. Such exploratory behaviour is also an ability that is highly valued in the workplace. A visionary that consistently comes up with profitable ideas has the following characteristics (innovator DNA): What they all have in common is the desire to explore.

      1. It has an extraordinary ability to associate and find connections that ordinary people would never find.

      2. I'm constantly habitually thinking about questions such as "what if?", "Why shouldn't it?", And "why do you do it this way?"

      3. I have an insatiable desire to try and experiment with this and that.
