The Hand Model of the Brain

Most of us find it hard to keep the parts of the brain in mind. I know I do - Latin names are difficult to hold onto. Anterior cingulate... Corpus calloscum... Here's a short video of Dan Siegel describing the brain in easy to understand terms. He uses a great, always available teaching aid - your hand.

Dan uses this handy (honestly, I did not see that pun until I was proofreading this) teaching aid with everyone from therapists and other professionals to parents and their children. It certainly beats the $400 model of the brain I was looking at!
