Nothing more than clay on the brain

Model of the Basal Ganglia and the Limbic System made of clay

Even children explore their environment primarily by grasping and touching - and in later life the connection between the sense of touch and the ability to learn remains as well. The biologist Dr. Janina Kirsch from Freiburg makes use of this fact: In her continuing education course, she allows the participants to knead different areas of the human brain made of modeling clay - whether temporal lobe, cerebellum or amygdala. The course, which is aimed at non-academics from medical professions, is intended to give the participants a low-threshold approach and a deeper understanding of the anatomy and function of the brain. A real alternative to textbooks.
