The human brain is an intricate organ that processes information in a distinct way for everyone. This is because every person's brain has a unique structure and function, akin to their fingerprints. Therefore, the way one person comprehends, learns, or remembers information may differ significantly from another. Recognising these individual differences could aid in creating personalised learning tactics to enhance overall cognitive abilities.
