The Art of Changing the Brain
- James E. Zull Comparison between My story and Their story

- Kyesam Jung

2010. 4. 28
KLOPE One "The useful approach for a teacher is to find ways to build on existing neural networks. Starting with whatever our students already know and building from there is a biologically based idea for pedagogy."

p.101-p.102 "But learners do improve and grow in their knowledge. If prior knoweldge turns out to be useless, they stop using it and learn new ideas."

p.109 "The knowledge in our minds consists of neuronal networks in our brains, so if that knowledge is to grow, the neuronal networks must physically change."

p.112 Students' pre-conception Conceptual change & Driscoll's thought Conceptual change = Physical change "This combination of unity and diversity is also true for our brain. If we focus on the details, we will be swamped and confused."

p.114 Chaos theory (L-system) "Another, possibly even more common, barrier to attending is our own misunderstanding of what it means. What should we do when we pay attention?"


"One such barrier is amygdala."

p.141 mis-understanding >>> amygdala "The best hypothesis seems to be that the brain knows things belong in the same category because those things trigger similar combinations of neural network."

p.156 "Hypothesis"
