This is your brain on communication

This is your brain on communication | Neuroscience and visual thinking | Scoop.it
Neuroscientist Uri Hasson researches the basis of human communication, and experiments from his lab reveal that even across different languages, our brains show similar activity, or become "aligned," when we hear the same idea or story. This amazing neural mechanism allows us to transmit brain patterns, sharing memories and knowledge. "We can communicate because we have a common code that presents meaning," Hasson says.
Roberta Faulhaber's insight:
not really visual neuroscience, but fascinating to see how different individuals process stories in a similar way.  Speaking of archetypes!

Essential Guide to Visual Thinking for E-Learning

Essential Guide to Visual Thinking for E-Learning | Neuroscience and visual thinking | Scoop.it
Here are two common challenges when building online training courses: knowing what content needs to be in the course and then having the right visuals to support the learning of that content. One way to overcome these challenges is to increase your visual thinking skills. You’ll learn to focus on the right content and then find the right visuals to support what you’re teaching.
