Introduction to the Brain

‘Introduction to the Brain is a resource that ties into the Scottish National 5 Psychology curriculum. It includes detailed Practitioner Notes in both MS Word and pdf format, and an activity on learning the parts and functions of the brain.

It also contains short biographies of the two co-authors and details of their academic involvement in psychology.

Created as part of the School of Geosciences' Outreach Programme, which allows students in their final year to work in partnership with a local school to develop a set of lesson plans.
