Starting our new section: Drugs, Brain & Behavior

Is this elephant missing a leg?
Today we started our new section on Anatomy & Physiology with the brain. Students completed a "What I know, What I think I know, What I want to know" about the brain & drugs. We focuses on the parts of the brain and their functions. Students examined PET Scans of brains to see how different regions of the brain are responsible for different functions.

1. Finish the complete the activity on interpreting PET Scans, you can link to it here.

Bonus Point:
2. Read the story about Phineas Gage below and answer the two questions at the end of the article.
