Brain To The Test: Personalities In Your Brain
Fast Facts about the Brain
On a daily basis, your brain makes decisions across a wide variety of different tasks. Think of this brain as having many faces. Some of these personalities arise spontaneously, while others are acquired during life, and are being developed over time. There are two brains. An outer brain (the hippocampus) connects with the cerebral cortex (the frontal lobe) which provides direction, intelligence, awareness, planning, and learning. A brain experienced in systematic learning will then connect to the subtleties of emotions that are not always visible, which are both rhythmic and rhythmic. This is known as the brain’s “mood.”
Teaching while walking allows students to participate in a conscious emotion called motion perception. Physical movement is how the body brings another person’s mood into conscious awareness. It is the body’s way of communicating this reality. There are different types of motion: simple, “outbound,” and “inbound.” If you want students to notice a specific emotion, you can have a conversation and allow movement to be used to bring up the emotion.
There are clear differences between listening and singing. Voice, music, and movement are all ways of expressing a sentiment or attitude. Some students react more strongly to words than others, and this difference is often seen in how vocal harmony works. Adults react differently than infants, with the expression of frustration sometimes occurring well before awareness of a visual cue. The ability to know our own voices is not something that is handed down to children, as their growth is constant.
When individuals listen, there is the subtle communication of a feeling being transmitted. An individual can listen to a description of a face and have that interpretation immediately. Through the use of musical colors, students may attempt to bring a feeling or emotion into the listener’s consciousness. Once the connection is made, the color of a song conveys a perspective that was previously unknown. This is called facial resonance.
Taking a Note
The student takes a note. Writing is a well-studied technique of communication. No matter what language a student speaks, it can be understood through a written record of a thought. Using the action of writing to communicate on a regular basis can lead to higher writing skills in later life. Teaching that allows for the presence of thought, and encourages the conceptualization of that thought, helps students use language more naturally and move at their own pace, resulting in an exciting learning experience.
