Dr. James Zull
Dr. Zull combines expert knowledge of brain imaging studies and learning theory, enabling a practical understanding of the brain's learning cycle:
(1) New information is received by the sensory cortex, then
(2) Reflective observation is carried out by the integrative cortex, then
(3) Abstract hypotheses are constructed in the frontal cortex, then
(4) The new knowledge is subjected to active testing involving the motor cortex
(Bringing in new knowledge to perpetuate the cycle)
When all steps in the cycle are working well in an emotionally supportive environment, the result is continuous active learning. When any of these steps is inhibited, active learning is not achieved. Dr. Zull gives suggestions for removing these blocks using examples drawn from a long teaching career.
