Brain Camp! With your learning pod:
Our brain takes in information about our environment and generates our experience of the world. There is no mind brain duality—only the brain. Grab some Play-Doh and explore the foundational structure of the brain as a first step to understanding facets of biological psychiatry.
- Play-Doh Brain
- Play-Doh Temporal Lobe
- RDoC, the Card Game
- Review the rules and facilitator guide together. Don’t worry about printing out cards or following all of the rules, just try to review the case scenarios and apply the RDoC concepts.
** Recommended Play-Doh set (if don’t already own): buy from Amazon here. You can also get Play-Doh from many different stores (try the toy aisle of a pharmacy). Want to make your own version of play-dough? In a bowl, mix 1 cup of cold water, 1 cup of salt, and 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil. Gradually add 3 cups of flour and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch until the mixture is the consistency of bread dough. Use either tempera paint or food coloring to add color. Store tightly sealed. The activity uses 4 colors of play-dough.
