The Canada Goal - Neuroscience - Information & Background
With the abundance of information made available today, this page is not designed to provide a detailed outline of neuroscience. The intention of this page is to help establish a common ground from one teacher/learner to another. The goal is to keep it simple with compelling key points about neuroscience that can help individuals to add perspective toward our truly unique ability to learn as human beings with a focused mindset toward growth & success.
Stimulating the brain (neurons) is a significant requirement for long term learning/growth to occur. The science of the brain and nervous system can be very complex and overwhelming for some individuals. Utilizing neuroscience tools and information can help the individual to visualize the process of growing their brain. How it works, how to use it and how to command it (focus) when necessary. This stimulating enhanced understanding can help learners to pay attention, focus, remember and experience growth development. Furthermore, if steps are taken to continue nurturing some of the key concepts within The Canada Goal presentation(s) - it will increase the number of participants that will successfully translate the message into long term memory.
The following are some helpful neuroscience references;
