Stress, as well as the hormones and neurotransmitters produced during and after a stressful event, have been revealed to be essential modulators of human learning and memory processes, with consequences for educational settings. While it is commonly considered that stress during the learning process improves memory formation, resulting in stronger memories, stress actually inhibits memory retrieval, placing students at risk of failing tests. According to current research, stress can obstruct the updating of memories in light of new information, resulting in a shift from flexible, "cognitive" learning to rigid behaviour.. These stress-related changes may explain some of the difficulty students have learning and remembering in the classroom. Using these insights from psychology and neuroscience to aid educational processes for both students and teachers has the potential to be beneficial. Stressful occurrences occur frequently in educational environments, affecting both students and staff
