The outer limits of the human brain http://tinyurl.com/9gwjb9 The outer limits of the human brain
Some brains are that little bit more remarkable than others. Why do the most gifted and talented brains stand out from the crowd? Is there anything physical or physiological that sets them apart? Here we take a look at some outstanding grey matter, and ask what brains are like at the outer limits of human achievement.

How does your brain work? Brain imaging, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and similar advanced techniques have given neuroscientists huge insights into this question. Yet studying the brain doesn't have to be such a high-tech enterprise. Simple experiments can still probe the inner workings of the brain, and many of these are easy to set up at home or are available on the internet.
Brainweb : The Brain and Brain Information http://www.dana.org/resources/brainweb/default.aspx The Brain and Brain Information
BrainWeb provides information and links to validated sites about brain diseases and disorders. These include outside resources reviewed by scientific advisors, as well as articles in Dana publications.
Sites listed in BrainWeb detail more than 25 common brain diseases and disorders, and include some of the Internetís best general neuroscience and health resources. They offer descriptions of conditions, FAQs (frequently asked questions), background for talking with physicians, treatment options, support information for families and care givers, organization contacts, or sources for more information.
BrainWeb and its links are suitable for lay readers, including students and educators, as well as people with brain disorders, their families, and caregivers.
Learning and the Brain http://tinyurl.com/gtb43 Learning and the Brain
Online video of presentation at SETT Sept. 2006.
We need to better understand how the brain processes information, and how learning mechanisms develop over the individual? lifecycle.
Three main issues are under current scrutiny: literacy, numeracy, lifelong learning, and the role of emotions in learning processes. This involves the participation of international expert networks coordinated by leading institutions from Europe, Japan and the United States.
