What are the implications for
teaching and learning?
Surge of information recently from numerous disciplines with implications for learning and life in general.
thicker right cerebral cortex
corpus callosum is thinner relative to brain weight
hypothalamus works on negative feedback
Female differentiated brain:
thicker left cerebral cortex
- corpus callosum is 23% thicker relative to brain weight
- less dense neurons
- smaller nuclei
- hypothalamus works on positive feedback (resulting in more emotionality)
- greater connection between hemispheres= greater articulation and fluency in languageKey areas of interest are: Sex differences (male and female brains are different)
