In recent blogs I have been looking at different elements of the human brain – not because I’m a wanna be neuroscientist but because I am interested to learn what brain science can tell us about creating and delivering effective learning.
So far I’ve looked at the reptilian and mammalian brains.
It’s time to look at our third, evolutionarily youngest, brain:
The Pre-Frontal Cortex (PFC)
Our PFC is the large area of the brain situated at the front of our brain and it takes most of the frontal lobes in the right and left hemispheres. This is the part of our brain that gives us much of our intelligence and problem solving abilities.
