Overview: This module is designed as a follow-up to the NNCI Play-Doh Brain module. This module can be used alone or in combination with the “3-D Brain” module. The goal of these linked modules is for participants to review the basic neuroanatomy of the brain through exercises that capitalize on multimodal sensory learning. Understanding the major areas of the brain and their basic functions provides a necessary foundation for any neuroscience curriculum. The success of these sessions relies on making classroom exercises as interactive as possible. The session employs simple techniques tapping into readily available resources that any program could use with their residents.
