Monkeys Don't Eat Salad: Educating with Neuroscience 2017 Conference

Posted by Peter Barnes on March 30, 2017 at 2:39 PM

monkey on tree.jpgA friend of mine lives in a community in the foothills of the Himalayas in India. High above a fast-flowing, snow-fed stream which feeds into the mighty Ganges river.
It’s a remote clearing in the jungle-clad mountains, teeming with monkeys.
The residents had a long trek down the mountainside to the village in the valley below to buy vegetables. The village vegetables were not always fresh. So they tried growing their own.
But the monkeys ate everything. 
Except for leafy green salad vegetables.
Monkeys don’t eat salad.My friend doesn’t know why. Maybe monkeys don’t like the taste. Maybe it upsets their stomachs. It doesn't matter. Now the community grows salad vegetables and they often enjoy the leafy green treats.
It’s like educational neuroscience. You can get the benefits even if you don't know the neurochemistry of your students’ brains.
Learn how educational neuroscience is changing teaching. Make sure you attend one of the Educating with Neuroscience 2017 Conferences in Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland (August 2017) or Jakarta, Manilla, Bangkok (November 2017).
