How the Brain Takes in Visual Information

Information designer Tom Wujec talks through three areas of the brain that help us understand words, images, feelings, connections. 6.5 minutes, very cool. This is focused on visual input, rather than hearing.

I think Bible teachers benefit from understanding how the mind works -- because it helps us engage students so they have greater opportunities to actually learn and retain information in useful ways.

(I have a whole course on this topic, actually -- Teach the Jesus Way.)

By the way, TED talks cover a large range of topics, and are always well done presentations. You can learn a great deal about how to get ideas across quickly and well by studying TED presenters.
