Why Is Attention Important? by “Hello Brain”


In my last post, I introduced you to the website “Hello Brain” – a collection of short, informative videos and blog posts about the human brain and how it works. In this post, I am introducing you to another excellent video and more blog posts about attention and memory by Hello Brain.

Hello Brain is the collaborative creation of a team of respected scientists, award winning media professionals and advocates with a vision to change the face of science and health by focusing on brain health and brain research. I have found their short, image-rich videos and blog posts to be simple, clear, informative, and entertaining.

Below is one of the many videos on the website – I’ve embedded it here so that you get an idea of the kind of information accessible on Hello Brain. For full-screen viewing, click on the white “play” arrow in the middle of the screen, then click on the square icon that will appear in the bottom right of the screen.

PS. If you are interested in experiencing brain-based instruction in action, consider attending one of the “Training from the BACK of the Room” (TBR) classes listed on the What’s New? or Training Events pages of my website. And, if you want to become a TBR Certified Trainer, the only Trainer Certification Course for 2017 will be held in San Diego, California on April 8th 2017 (the 2-day TBR class is a pre-requisite for the Trainer Certification Course).
