Transcript of Note Taking, Note Building

Taking Awesome Notes Spring 2012 with Dr. Michael Getty The Scary Truth about Notetaking ... Not much about your in-class notetaking techniques makes a difference. What matters most is what happens BEFORE and AFTER you take notes in class. Taking notes is just the beginning of a process
of altering your brain's physiology at multiple levels,
from molecules to cells to networks of cells. Perceiving new information
Good for up to one minute
Mostly sensory (sound, sight) Long-Term Memory
Meaning-Based: Ideas, Concepts, Systems

Supported and Influenced by Multiple Brain Centers: Hippocampus, Thalamus, Amygdala, Frontal Lobes, etc. BUILDING NOTES
