Which Parts of the Brain Do What?

Which Parts of the Brain Do What? is the title of a new MinuteEarth video. In the short video students can learn a bit about the origins of brain studies, how FRMIs changed the way brain function is studied, and why correlation does not always equal causation. The video also introduces students to the terms brain lesion, Broca’s area, fusiform face area, hippocampus, and amygdala. A look at the video notes on YouTube will provide you with a list of the resources used in creating the video.

If you want your students do more than just watch this video, you could have them take notes while watching then share their notes with you. These three tools will enable them to do that. You could also develop a quiz based on this video by using the Vizia video quiz creation tool.
