BrainWorks - Introducing Brain Science to Students

This is a series of presentations and activities that are designed to introduce students to Cognitive Development.  I have had success doing one of these every now and then as part of a history class.  Also, I have taught units on Child Development and Education where I used them all within the context of the same unit.  I like the spreading of these lessons throughtout the year in a high school setting, where students can sort of see it as a continuing series of interesting topics that break up the normal flow of learning.

Human Behavioral Biology

Stanford University professor Robert Sapolsky presents the course Human Behavioral Biology. He begins by explaining the premise of the course and how he aims to avoid categorical thinking. (March 29, 2010)

Human behavioral biology examines traits such as human sexual behavior, emotions memory, perception, and language from a biological perspective. It seeks to identify how human behavior is influenced by brain, sensory, hormone, fetal development and other biological influences.

" This course provides an introduction to important philosophical questions about the mind, specifically those that are intimately connected with contemporary psychology and neuroscience. Are our concepts innate, or are they acquired by experience? (And what does it even mean to call a concept 'innate'?) Are 'mental images' pictures in the head? Is color in the mind or in the world? Is the mind nothing more than the brain? Can there be a science of consciousness? The course includes guest lectures by Philosophers and Cognitive Scientists."

In Nothing To Rave About, students are asked to uncover why there has been a dramatic increase in the number of teens admitted to the emergency room after partying at a local dance club. During their investigation, they learn how ecstasy and other club drugs act on the nervous system. This game consists of three consecutive episodes with a continuous storyline and we recommend playing the episodes in order.
