OBJECTIVE:The objective of this presentation is to help understand how individuals’ brains function andprocess information as well as how and why they retain and recall is important for anysuccessful educator, trainer, or instructional designer.
HOW DOES THE BRAIN ORGANIZE ANDREORGANIZE INFORMATION?The brain organizes sensations andinformation. This information isreceived in our brains throughemotions and memories. Theseemotions and memories are processedinto thoughts. In order to organize allthese thoughts, the brain creates a“file cabinet” to sort the various filesin. The different files stored in the filecabinet are called concepts.
HOW THE BRAIN IS WIREDWhen it come to how the brain iswired, the connections are madeby neurons that link the sensoryinputs and motor outputs withcenters in the various lobes of thecerebral cortex. There are alsolinkages between these corticalcenters and other parts of thebrain (Freudenrich & Boyd, 2021).
SYNAPSES FORM AND CHANGEChildren’s brains develop in spurts called criticalperiods. The first occurs around age 2, with asecond one occurring during adolescence. At thestart of these periods, the number of connections(synapses) between brain cells (neurons)doubles. Two-year-olds have twice as manysynapses as adults. Because these connectionsbetween brain cells are where learning occurs,twice as many synapses enable the brain tolearn faster than at any other time of life.
