Brain and Behavior Institute 2006

Welcome to the home page of the Brain and Behavior Institute at Bryn Mawr College for the year 2006. This Institute (like others in the series) is designed to bring together college faculty and K-12 teachers to discuss current understandings of brain function in relation to behavior ... and the implications of those understandings for classroom teaching and education generally. The Institute, which runs from 10 July to 21 July, is supported by a grant to Bryn Mawr College from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and by the College's Center for Science in Society and the Bryn Mawr/Haverford K-16 Collaborations in Science and Mathematics Education.

The Brain - is wider than the Sky -
For - put them side by side -
The one the other will contain
With ease - and You - beside. Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
"Science has the potential to be what we all collectively need as we evolve into a world wide community: a nexus point that encourages and supports the evolution of shared human stories of exploration and growth, an evolution in which all human beings are involved and take pride."Revisiting Science in Culture (see also Science as Story Telling In Action)
The Brain as Scientist/Story Teller/Inquirer(see also Getting It Less Wrong: The Brain's Ways and Making the Unconscious Conscious and Vice Versa)
"For the first time in human history, it is becoming possible to achieve optimal educational environments for all human beings. The web can provide the needed richness, interactivity, and room to explore in a cooperative and collaborative mode." - Serendip Credo on Education and Technology
