A look at contemporary brain science and improving teaching What can contemporary brain science tell us about the mysteries of the brain and can this knowledge help improve our ability to teach?
Renowned neurosurgeon Professor Hugh Coakham gives us the benefit of his years of hands-on experience to simply explain how the brain functions.
We also hear from Dr Paul-Howard Jones, who is examing the link between brain function with teaching creativity.
And Dr Harry Witchel, Senior Research Fellow at the University of Bristol, conducts an experiment which demonstrates unconscious learning. His analysis of the results provides insight in to the mechanisms taking place in the brain when we learn without even being aware of it.
