Huge investment in a few brain

Grade Level: 8th; Type: Neurosciences/Biology

To determine how the human brain functions by constructing a model of our brain and identifying the basic structures and specific areas of specialization.

  • What is the brain and what purpose does it serve?
  • Do we have two brains or just one? Explain.
  • What are the functions of the left hemisphere? The right hemisphere?
  • What is the role of the corpus callosum?
  • What would occur if we lacked a corpus callosum or if it became inoperative?
  • What is the function of the spinal cord?
  • How does the medulla oblongata make life so much easier for us?
  • What part of the brain regulates our sleep?
  • What is the limbic system?
  • Is the neocortexof any value?
  • What are the differences among the following lobes, the frontal, the parietal, the temporal the occipital?
  • Why are Broca`s and Wernicke`sAreas so important?
  • Would you agree or disagree with the following description of the brain?On what basis would you agree or disagree? The brain is both a chemical and electrical organ which drives and sustains the nervous system and fully regulates the human body?

On the information level, the student will acquire basic and current information on the structures of the human brain and the specific functions of each. For most students, this is an exciting adventure since it deals with how they function, how they learn, how they read, write, invent, create, and adapt to their world. Topics such the existence of two hemispheres having different functions and working together, complementing each other, the intriguing results gathered from the split brain research, advances in brain development and growth, in studies on consciousness, memory, states of mind as well as diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Epilepsy capture their interest.
