Ideological and political education is a social education activity carried out under certain historical conditions (Bell & York, 2010). It is a fine tradition and a political advantage of our party. College students are the builders and successors of the future of our motherland, and their ideological and political education is particularly important for the future of our country. It's not only related to the overall development of individuals, but also to the overall development direction of the society (Brookes, 1995). However, under the background of globalization and the Internet, the ideological and political education of college students is being influenced by non-mainstream ideologies and various negative social phenomenon (Bajaj, 2012), and the effectiveness of ideological and political education in colleges and universities is facing a severe test. Therefore, a serious issue that college ideological and political educators must face and think about is how to target the microscopic psychological characteristics of contemporary college students, follow the laws of brain science and brain activities, and improve the effectiveness of ideological and political education for college students (Creedon & Mai, 2005).

Through the review of relevant references at home and abroad (Söderbaum, 2004), the previous research on ideological and political education of college students mainly focused on the methods, contents, processes and carriers of the education, however, as a kind of social education activity of human idea transformation and spiritual production, the effect of ideological and political education is inseparable from people's cognitive process of ideological and political education and the cognitive effect (Park & Kim, 2008). Cognition is the process by which the human brain processes external information. Therefore, the natural basis for the formation of cognition of college students' ideological and political education is the physical structure and function level of the human brain (Solomon & Jr, 2011). The cognition of ideological education belongs to a relatively new research field, mainly focusing on the acceptance and internalization of ideological and political education, the study of cognitive factors, the study of moral cognition (Bong, 2001), and other aspects. The main ideas include: the study of the role of cognition of ideological and political education in the generation of ideological and political education contexts by cognitive schemas and mechanisms (Buckler & Dolowitz, 2012), and demonstration of the role of cognition in the generation and development of ideological and political education by cognitive roots and cognitive contradictions (Armaline & Hoover, 1989).

Based on the above analysis, this paper takes the rules of brain science and brain activities as the starting point, and uses the questionnaire survey method to investigate the ideology construction of ideological and political education and the status quo of the values of college students in China. The survey shows that the current situation of college students' ideological and political education is generally optimistic, but there are still some students who have ideology construction and value orientation problems such as ambiguity of ideals, lack of social responsibility, and distortion of value orientation. Combined with the investigation results, this paper discusses to strengthen the ideology and value construction of ideological and political education of college students from the perspectives of the characteristics, classification and essence of ideological and political education cognition, in the hopes of providing relevant theoretical basis for improving the effectiveness of ideological and political education of college students.
