Brainsmart animation - the human brain
This short animation uses computer imagery to illustrate the main parts of the human brain, and what happens whenever you acquire new knowledge or skills. We each have 100 billion neurons (or braincells) and novel experiences cause new pathways to be created between the neurons, which then have to be reinforced by repeated practice (or revision) for the memory to be long-lasting. Please note this clip is only available in Flash.
