narative structures and codes - some great dot point information.

Aurion Learning's curator insight, August 2, 2013 1:38 AM

Claude Levi-Strauss was a social anthropologist who "found that stories that are told unconciously mirror the values and myths of a culture."

 

Storytelling is an effective way of communicating values and information.

The Science of Storytelling

The Science of Storytelling | iEduc | Scoop.it
Many studies show us that our brains prefer storytelling to facts.When we read facts, only the language parts of our brains work to understand the meaning. When we read a story, the language parts of our brains and any other part of the brain that we would use if we were actually experiencing what we’re reading, light up.This means that it’s easier for us to remember stories than facts. Our brains can't make major distinctions between a story we’re reading about and something we are actually doing....

There is nothing new under the sun. But that doesn't mean we can learn what our forefathers in sales new se well.  Stories get you farther than facts.

LocalMark's curator insight, July 28, 8:02 AM

Every brand tells a story.

 

According to this study, our brains like stories more than facts. 

 

So give the people what they want: a good story. 

Carol Sherriff's curator insight, July 28, 8:48 AM

Intriguing information about how storytelling affects the brain and makes it easier to remember things and make distinctions between the story and our experience.

How playing an instrument benefits your brain - TED-Ed

How playing an instrument benefits your brain - TED-Ed | iEduc | Scoop.it
"When you listen to music, multiple areas of your brain become engaged and active. But when you actually play an instrument, that activity becomes more like a full-body brain workout. What’s going on? Anita Collins explains the fireworks that go off in musicians’ brains when they play, and examines some of the long-term positive effects of this mental workout."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 27, 3:25 PM

Music does amazing things in your brain, and playing music creates "a full-body brain workout." This video shares what happens in the brain when it hears music, or when the individual is playing music. The science is showing that the playing of music increases executive functioning skills.

Along with a short quiz (that includes multiple choice anc some open response questions) you will also find a number of additional resources that look at the brain as well as how music impacts the brain.
