Students are said to be more motivated to learn when they realize the powers and plasticity of their brains. Therefore, it’s with great pleasure that PBS LearningMedia invites classrooms to join a virtual conversation with Dr. David Eagleman, host of the PBS multi-part series THE BRAIN, premiering on WGBY tomorrow at 10pm. During today’s webinar from 1:00-2:00 p.m. students will learn how our personality, emotions and memories are encoded as neural activity and how the human brain continues to develop over the course of our lives. Classrooms will also get a sneak peek at the six-part series airing tomorrow night. In addition, questions from the audience will be taken, followed by a special showcase of resources for students and teachers presented by PBS LearningMedia after the Q&A.
