Human Brain Mapping

I've been watching a lot of neurobiology and psychology research these past few years, hoping to gain more insights into how people learn -- which helps us teach to change lives!

There is a remarkable scientific cataloging project going on to map the features of the human brain and patterns of gene expression.  Here is one sentence that captivated my attention:

"As they assembled the brain images and genetic data, the researchers were surprised to discover that by this neural measure, any two people are 94% alike."

Teachers, take some comfort in this: your teaching approach can be effective with many, many people. God has prewired people to be influenced powerfully by His Word!

Interesting; very interesting.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
