Homework and Preparation for the Nervous System

 

 Prepare your Anatomy:

  1. LISTEN these  youtube videos: Start with some by   Rodolfo LLinas  - what do Brains do? How are Brains Structured? How do Brains act?

  2. WATCH: Go to NeuroGlial  Playlist. pick the ones you can learn from.  Choose other sources that you like and let us all know what you have found, HERE.

  3. Play with the Biodigital Human for true wild 3D (you can click and unclick bones/organs/muscles to see underneath structures or simpler: 3d Brain Model Online - You can move the model to see it from all kinds of angles. Click on pull down menu to choose which areas to focus on. This puts your 2D anatomy book in perspective.

  4. READ: I'm very excited about this great  opportunity to purchase a book, that is a great resource! I'm reading it  right now and its organizing all my questions into answers....

    Order the Book: The Users Guide to the Brain -  99 cents!! and still absolutely relevant! Perception - Integration.Movement, Memory, Emotion, Language, Social Behavior

  5. More Science Articles: Learning is the key to happiness,  MIT On pruning, Musclespindle and Central Nervous System, You are your Brain,  Brain learning throughout life, Mindful Movement cultivates Attention - one of the few scientific studies on somatic movement, Porges on Parasympathetic, Exercise Improves Brain Function, awesome detail photos of the nerves, glial cells and arteries/ venes, Gut-Microbes set circadian rhythm

  6. Lastly, Mark Taylor's Manuals are also available - he is offering all 10 for $100 or each one at $15 each - including the Nervous System 153 pages). These are  ebooks, so they are easily accessible. (BNP, Connective Tissue,Fluids, Muscles, Organs, Reflexes, S&P, Skeletal, Endocrine, Fluids. These are not required - but great resource, for this unit, providing much of the anatomy from a Body-Mind Movement point of view.

  7. Review and color the coloring book pages on the Nervous System! I suggest starting with pages 78,79,83,84,90 from the Anatomy Coloring Book, 4th edition ( Ascending paths, Descending Paths, Cranial Nerves, Spinal Nerves, Sensory receptors)Also p128, 129 Respiratory System: External Nose & Sinuses and Dermis P. 16 -  then complete ALL  pages of the Nervous System - p13, p68- 93. 

  8. Research Partners: Partner up and prepare a certain area of the nervous system- to teach to the group

  9. Explore  .............either in dance or in a regular practice you do

  10. Stay connected with your folks!

  11. More Science Articles: Learning is the key to happiness,  MIT On pruning, Musclespindle and Central Nervous System, You are your Brain,  Brain learning throughout life, Mindful Movement cultivates Attention - one of the few scientific studies on somatic movement, Porges on Parasympathetic, Exercise Improves Brain Function, awesome detail photos of the nerves, glial cells and arteries/ venes, Gut-Microbes set circadian rhythm
