Brain-Based Education: Mapping Brain to Behavior
Edelman's model of our brain, as a rich, layered, messy, unplanned jungle ecosystem is especially intriguing however, because it suggests that a jungle like brain might thrive best in a jungle like classroom that includes many sensory, cultural, and problem layers that are closely related to the real world environment in which we live
R. Sylwester, A Celebration of Neurons, p. 23
Consider a poem, a play, a great novel, or great work of philosophy. They all involve a sense of the wholeness of things and a capacity to work with patterns, often in timeless ways. In other words, the left brain processes are enriched and supported by right brain processes.
R. Caine & G. Caine, Making Connections, p. 37
The left brain is the logical hemisphere. It monitors the areas for speech, reading and writing.
It recognizes words, letters, and numbers.
The right brain is the intuitive hemisphere. It gathers information more from images than from words.
It recognizes places, faces, and objects.
