Cognition and Management Methods of Marine Environmental Protection in China Based on Cognitive Neuroscience

Enqian Ouyang, Xiaodong Tou, Xiurong Huang


Cognition is a kind of advanced neural activity that can reflect the reality. The cognition of marine environmental protection is a special brain activity that aims at marine environmental protection. Based on this, this paper starts from the four perspectives of marine environmental cognition, designs questionnaires which are distributed to college students in Shandong Province, and then summarizes the survey results. And this paper discusses the cognition degree of marine environmental protection of contemporary college students in China from the perspective of neuroscience. On this basis, this paper points out the existing problems and puts forward policy suggestions for management methods of China’s marine environmental protection.
