training, education, institutions, students, pedagogy


The educational process is a dynamic phenomenon that changes and develops under the influence of various factors of a social, economic, political, regulatory, material, technical and technological nature, which, in our opinion, determines the need for constant updating of its content in accordance with the requirements of the time. The impetus for the transformation of the content of the natural scientific training of future psychologists, taking into account current trends in the present and current state of development of the neurobiological sciences, was the conceptual basis of the study. Let us characterize the modern practice of natural-science training of future psychologists in higher educational institutions of Ukraine and the peculiarities of creating an integrative course "Fundamentals of modern neurobiology" as a factor that will contribute to the transformation of the content of natural-science training of future psychologists, taking into account current trends in the present and current state of development of neurobiological sciences. The study confirms the feasibility and necessity of transforming the content of modern science education of future psychologists, carried out in higher educational institutions, and factors identified by students-psychologists (the relevance of science education, the lack of the results of modern scientific research in the educational material, the lack of the necessary educational and methodical literature, outdated teaching methods, little free time) that prevent them from improving their quality.
