This digital download is for a short lecture/presentation on how the brain works. I created it to be used for high school Psychology class, but it might also be useful for anatomy or a specialized science course. It is a simple and basic introduction that includes:
- what is a neuron
- types of neurons (motor, sensory, and relay)
- definitions of axon, myelin sheath, dendrites, neurotransmitter, and a nerve
- a short video link (to a 10 minute crash course video)
- graphic illustrations
This is a short 12-slide resource, and in my experience is usually takes one class period. I underlined important terms and definitions, just to assist with notetaking.
