brain rules Image: Tag Galaxy Thanks to people like Dan Gilbert and John Medina who are sharing their knowledge on the internet, teachers now have ready access to information about how the brain works. Dr. John Medina is a molecular biologist who has been exploring the practical uses of how the 12 rules can give us some solid insight into how the brain works. This has to have implications for the Personal and Social Capability in all its elements. Male and female brains are different, sleep does affect how we learn. Exercise improves cognition and we don’t pay attention to the boring things in life. The 12 brain rules are listed on Dr John Medina’s site Brain Rules and each one is examined separately if you click on the links in the left sidebar. If you go to the bottom of the right sidebar to FROM THE BOOK and click on the rules (posters) it will download the pdf version for you. I have done that because I plan to work on them. There are also some good YouTube videos of this material.
