are the greatest stimulators of brain circulation
and metabolism.*

Communication
 93% of all communication is nonverbal
 Develop Routines
Clocks
Play
 The right movements can stimulate
and activate all brain subsystems while building and
opening neural pathways, enhancing ability to take in,
process, and express information
GAMES
 As students interact with each other,

 they develop their relationships and
 trust levels with each other,
 enhance communication,
 improve cooperation, and
 achieve a sense of unity.
Mirror Neurons
 Neuroscientist, Marco Iacoboni (UCLA) suggests that
mirror neuron systems in the human brain help us
understand the actions and intentions of other people
and for learning new skills by imitation.
GAMES teach how to
 Plan moves by examining many possibilities
 Think about consequences of action
 Pay attention
 Visualize future moves
 Plan ahead more than one step at a time
Zoom
 Stand in a circle. One person starts the game by
looking left or right and says, “Zoom!”. “Zoom” is
repeated in the same direction until someone puts on
the brakes by saying, “Eek!”. “Eek” reverses the
direction.
Brain Systems
 Prefrontal cortex
 Anterior cingulate gyrus
 Deep limbic system
 Basal ganglia
 Temporal lobes
 Cerebellum – balance
Neurotransmitters
Dopamine: learning, motivation, attention, movement
Serotonin: helps keep brain activity under control,
influences mood, impulsivity, anger and aggressiveness
Norepinephrine: amplifies signals that influence
attention, perception, motivation and arousal
Glutamate:
stirs up activity; is responsible for neurons
firing together, wiring together
GABA:

clamps down on activity
BDNF
What makes us move is what makes us think.
Aerobic Exercise
 12 minutes a day
Rebalances neurotransmitters and raises BDNF

Making A Good Brain Great
Dr. Daniel Amen
 The best sources of stimulation for the brain are:
 physical exercise
 mental exercise
 social bonding

 1. You can learn new things, but you can’t really
change how intelligent you are.

change it quite a bit.

Foundation Skills
 Foundational skills like memorizing enable higher
order thinking and deeper insight because they free
students from having to use cognitive processing
capacity in more basic calculations . The more
proficient you are at lower-order skills, the more
proficient your become at higher order skills.

Play Station Nation
 There was a child went forth every day,
 And the first object he look’d upon, that object he
 became,
And that object became part of him for the day or a certain
part of the day,
Or for many years or stretching cycles of years.

Apprenticeships
 What today’s students lack is practical experience.
 Experience shapes the brain.
 Development plays a role.

Earthing
The images here were taken only thirty
minutes apart - before (left) and after
grounding (right). They illustrate a rapid
resolution of inflammation and help
explain the impact of Earthing on
chronic pain, stiffness, and a variety of
symptoms. Dr. Stephen Sinatra
Earthing
 When you are grounded, there is a transfer of free
electrons from the Earth into your body. They are
probably the most potent antioxidants known to man.
 Beneficial changes in heart rate
 Decreases levels of inflammation

LEARNING

INPUT

Physically building memories
 1. Read, listen, watch
 2. Think: ask, answer, discuss
 3. Write: cognitive map to consolidate memories
Note Making
the ability to collect, organize and manage information
from the text
Re-work notes and text into one “whole”.
#1 Skill for Learning
Note Making
 Spend more time actively reciting and less time
just re-reading.
 Reciting is one of the most powerful ways to learn
and remember. Constantly practice restating,
repeating, putting into your own words what
you’ve just learned forcing the left and right brain
to work together.

sugar for the whole

Sleep

Trouble falling asleep, tossing and turning, waking
and falling back asleep, getting up two, three or four times
a night to urinate, being startled awake by some minor
noise and other sleep problems could be indicative of a
nutritional deficiency that allows susceptibility to the
things that commonly wake you up or keep you awake at
night. Often it is a mineral deficiency.

Salt is vital
 for sleep regulation.
 It is a natural hypnotic.
