We watched the following video about Phineas Gage. (Vimos el siguiente video sobre Phineas Gage.)
And this video about the hippocampus... (Y este otro video sobre el hipocampo...)
Then, we made glitter bottles to test the effect of stress on our brains:
What is the the impact of stress, anxiety, and fear on the brain? When the mind is calm and clear, like the unshaken bottle, information is able to pass successfully to the other parts of the brain. If we need to store or retrieve memories, we can access our hippocampus with greater ease. If we need to solve complex problems, make connections, or focus and pay attention, information is able to travel to our prefrontal cortex where learning takes place.
