“Mammalian Brain Chemistry Explains Everything” – Slides by Loretta Breuning, PhD

Want to understand a bit more about your human (mammal) brain? I invite you to view this interesting slide presentation. It explains so much in “scientific-language-made-simple,” and it helps us understand why both physical and psychological safety are so important to learning. Enjoy!



NOTE from Sharon: The only caveat I would add to this slide presentation is that the image on slide #24 should say: “neo-cortex, limbic system, brain stem.”
