I spent several hours reviewing and navigating through this learning object. The “Probe the Brain” section was very educational. This site provides information and diagrams of the brain and the motor cortex. This site also provides background history of the researchers and their experiments which were conducted in order to discover of how the brain functions. The “Probe the Brain” activity provides an interactive tool which allows individuals to discover the different functions of the brain. “Probe the Brain” can offer a wonderful educational experience for students. This site enables students to learn about the brain and the motor cortex in an enjoyable interactive format. With the background information, diagrams, and stimulation, this section provides a comprehensive and engaging learning activity for all learners.
