Brains Behind It: New Knowledge About the Brain and Learning
By Alistair Smith

If you want to know more about the brain and learning, this is the book you need.

In what promises to become the most trusted resource of the brain-based learning movement, The Brain's Behind It guides you through the development cycle of the brain and then describes what helps and hinders learning.

This fascinating, highly topical, and well-researched book answers many of your questions, including-

· Can you teach intelligence?

· How can I recognize a learner under stress? What can I do about it?

· Why won't the students in my class sit still?

· What factors in a mother's lifestyle will influence her baby's learning?

· What is the best time for my child to begin formal learning?

· What is the best time to learn any language?

· What is memory? Does it exist somewhere in the brain?

· How does sleep improve all-round memory and recall?·

· What happens to my brain as I age?

· Can I control my own fears? If so, how?

The Brain's Behind It identifies fallacies, fads, and facts about the brain and learning and gives you valuable recommendations you can use, whether you're a teacher, parent, or policy-maker.
