Learn About The Brain

Do you know how the brain works?

Do you know what a brain looks like? Here is an English video lesson which provides a fascinating look at the brain and how it works.

This video lesson answers these questions … with a twist.

Jill Bolte Taylor is a brain scientist who had a stroke. In this 20-minute presentation, we get the insider’s perspective on how the brain works and what happens when the brain shuts down.  Her description of right brain-left brain functions is useful for teachers, as is her presentation of a real human brain.  I didn’t know it looked like that.

Sit back and enjoy because her presentation is remarkable.

Informative. Wonderful.  Inspirational.
