In the process of forming the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities of students, special attention is paid to the approaches and application of modern methods and techniques used in the process of their education. In recent years, many scientists and teachers have begun to pay special attention to the application of Neuro-Didactics principles in the process of conducting classes. Neuropedagogy is a relatively young science, which is an instrument of interaction between cognitive neurosciences and didactics. Its goal is to use the results of research on the characteristics of the human brain in relation to learning and memory for didactics and make them suitable for use in the educational process. Our study is intended to provide insight into the most important findings and thus suggest new ways to effectively teach students in continuing professional education (CVE). The paper presents a description of the brain system, in particular the frontal, parietal, occipital and temporal lobes. The limbic system of the brain is described and its most important functions related to learning are identified. Descriptions of the influence of age and gender factors on the learning process are presented. The main provisions of Neuro-Didactics are analyzed and author’s Neuro-Didactics principles are developed. The main provisions of Neuro-Didactics of European scientists and practitioners are given. An example of the implementation of neurodidactic principles in the process of preparing students in the direction of “Economics” within the discipline “Informatics” is presented.

Keywords: Neuropedagogy, Neuro-Didactics, principles, brain, engineering students, informatics, agricultural engineering.
