I. What is creative teaching?
4
II. Innovative activities for promoting
neuroscience education
Goals 1. To promote neuroscience education in a
series of fun, innovative and
well-organized activities 2. To
cultivate students interest in neuroscience,
to train students ability of
independent thinking and to
inspire students creativity
5
III. How do we carry out these activities?
Aim 1. To promote neuroscience education in a
series of fun, innovative and
well-organized activities
Activity 1 Sensory response of humans
and rats to IR stimulus
Activities 2 4Understanding the mechanisms of
learning and memory
6
Activity 1 Plantar analgesia test
Objectives 1. To let students understand the
individual differences
in sensory response 2. To let
students see the similarity in the stimulus-
response between humans and
rats
7
Activity 2 Stereotaxic apparatus and
neuroscience research
Objectives To show students how to locate
specific brain regions using
the stereotaxic apparatus and to teach
students its broad applications

8
Activity 3 Water maze test for evaluation of
learning and memory in mice
Objective To allow students to witness that
mice can learn the location
of the hidden platform
9
Activity 4 Watch the video The brain our
universe within
Objective To teach students the basic mechanisms
of learning and memory
This video explains the known mechanisms of
learning and memory and illustrates the
importance of hippocampus in learning and memory
with a vivid example.
10
III. How do we carry out these activities?
Aim 2. To cultivate students interest in
neuroscience, to train students
ability of independent thinking and
to inspire students creativity
Activity 5 Presentation of stories of prominent
neuroscientists
11
Activity 5 Presentation of Stories of Prominent
Neuroscientists
Instructions for preparing the presentation
1. Give a general introduction of a prominent
neuroscientist.
2. Give an introduction of the research
background.
3. What observations have led him/her to propose
the hypothesis?
4. What is his/her hypothesis?
5. How did they test their hypothesis?
6. What is his/her major contribution to the
research field?
7. Summary of his/her findings and the impact of
the findings on the future research
12
Activity 5 Presentation of Stories of Prominent
Neuroscientists
Flow chart for preparing this assignment
Groups of 7 students meet, discuss and select a
topic on stories of Prominent Neuroscientists
(Keep meeting records).
Every member has to find the appropriate
materials according to the instructions provided
by the instructor.
Discuss the collected materials and give each
member a specific assignment
Organize the materials, prepare the Power Point
presentation and rehearse the presentation
several times
Oral presentation and final paper report
including meeting records
13
Example 1
William Langston The Case of the Frozen Addicts

15
IV. Students responses to experiments

16
IV. Students responses to presenting stories of
prominent neuroscientists

17
IV. Students responses
Students design neuroscience experiments for
their competition of experimental design
Exp 1 Will different visual stimuli affect the
EEG? Exp 2 Will mice learn to exit the
maze? Exp 3 Will mice learn to avoid electric
mosquito rack?
18
V. A few extras for creative teaching
19
V. A few extras for creative teaching
1. Turn the ordinary into the extraordinary
20
Point (Erection) and Shoot (Ejaculation) Parasympa
thetic and Sympathetic
Example 1
  • The sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions
  • Have antagonistic effects on target organs

21
1. Turn the ordinary into the extraordinary
Example 2
Anion (-) Cation ()
Example 3
oligodendrocytes Schwann cells (CNS)
(PNS)
22
2. Let students experience that knowledge is
power

3. IRS system is good, but personal interaction
with students is much better.
25
4. Make learning a lot of fun and interesting
26
Nervous system Vivid example
27
Reproduction
Male copulatory behavior
Female copulatory behavior
28

Suggestions
  1. Set up a wireless microphone in the classroom
  2. Outstanding Teachers Hall of Fame
