Analysis and Brain Mechanism of English Learning Characteristics of College Students Considering Self-Efficacy Regulation

Qianjiao Wang


In order to explore the relationship between the level of self-efficacy regulation and the physiological response of brain cognition mechanism, this paper studied the ERP and brain inhibitory effect of the self-efficacy regulation level of college students to English vocabulary stimulus from the perspective of cognitive neurology. The purpose of this study is to help college students master English learning methods based on the consideration of Self-efficacy regulation, regulate self-cognition, emotions, and learning activities more systematically, to further improve the effectiveness of English learning. Two groups of college students with low and high self-efficacy regulation ability are selected as experimental subjects and the GO/NO-GO paradigm of biological vocabulary and non-biological vocabulary is selected as the stimulus. The EGG/ERP produced by Neuroscan Company is selected as the brain electrical testing instrument to measure the brain electricity event potentials of N2 and P3 and the digital processing and analysis are conducted on the measurement results. The experimental results show that students with high self-efficacy regulation ability have better response inhibition control ability.
