dc.description.abstract Phenomics is concerned with detailed description of all aspects of organisms, from their physical foundations at genetic, molecular and cellular level, to behavioural and psychological traits. Neuropsychiatric phenomics tries to understand mental disease from such broad perspective. It is clear that learning sciences also need similar approach that should integrate efforts to understand cognitive processes from the perspective of the brain development, in temporal, spatial, psychological and social aspects. A new branch of science called neurocognitive phenomics is proposed, treating the brain as a substrate shaped by the genetic, epigenetic, cellular and environmental factors, in which learning processes due to the individual experiences, social contacts, education and culture take place. A brief review of selected aspects, from genes to learning styles, is presented, and a link between central, peripheral and motor processes in the brain linked to learning styles.
