...Own a Million-dollar Racehorse ? If you did, would you… Keep him up until the wee hours of the morning? Permit him to skip 90% his training rituals? Let him maintain a poor non-nutritious diet? (Pepsi and potato chips?) Endorse an almost completely sedentary lifestyle? Find it okay for him to play video games for 3-4 hours a day? Experiment on him with habit-forming and destructive drugs and/or hallucinogens? Sometimes combining them with alcohol? Let him “hang out” with other un-ambitious horses listening to rock and rap music for most of the day? Kenneth WessonBrain-based learning (408) 223-6728
...Own a Million-dollar Racehorse ? If you did, would you… Allow him to watch 9,000 hours of TV each year, complete with 45,000 gratuitous horse murders and expect him to be well- adjusted with a healthy self concept, and to see the world as a supportive, friendly place to grow, develop and a place where he will maximize his full potential? If you did, what would he be worth to you or to himself? Our students and children have multi-billion dollar brains. We should not allow their brains to be treated in ways far worse than we would ever treat a horse. Kenneth WessonBrain-based learning (408) 223-6728

Learning Input Processing Dissecting Retrieval Storage Output (usage, application, transfer, etc.) The concept of human learning cannot be restricted to a simple Stimulus Response equation.
Acrostics SAN DOPE Serotonin 5-Hydroxytryptamine Acetylcholine (ACh) - Neurons that synthesize and release ACh are referred to as cholinergic neurons. Norepinephrine (NE) Dopamine (DA) Oxytocin Phenylethanolamine * * Epinephrine (adrenaline) *principal catecholamines are norepinephrine, epinephrine and dopamine. ** Phenylethanolamine N- methyltransferase converts norepinephrine to epinephrine
