This site provides up to date information about how the brain works and how to get the most from it. Please browse and download free articles.
Have you kept up with the astonishing findings about our brains, how we learn and how we can best teach children? New information about the brain is being discovered every day. Neuroscientists are working with educators to get the message through that there is a great deal we can do to improve our skills in teaching and learning.
Derek Pugh is one of those educators. An author and highly experienced teacher and Principal, his seminars and workshops have led thousands of people to understandings about the structure and function of their brains and how to prepare them for best use. This is powerful knowledge - of particular use to students, teachers, parents and trainers everywhere.
Go to the 'articles' page for information about how our brains work and what we should do to make them work best.

"along comes Derek Pugh and presents a solidly built guide to learning, and even more important, the care and nurturing of the human brain. The fact that this book is accessible, entertaining humourous and as equally helpful to parents and teachers as it is to teenagers is what makes this OWNER'S GUIDE TO THE TEENAGE BRAIN so valuable. If schools would place this book on the required reading list for high school students we'd likely see some benefits." Grady Harp
"I therefore make no apologies in recommending 'The Owner's Guide' to all readers, especially parents and educators, and urge that all educational authorities (plus school and public libraries) purchase a copy." Chris CC
A book for every teenager and anyone who knows one.
This book is written specifically for teenagers, their parents and teachers. Readers discover why the teenage years are so different from what happens both before and after. The Owner's Guide to the Teenage Brain gives up to date neuroscience information about what teenagers can do to get the most out of their brains and how to optimise their learning, whilst giving an in depth understanding of the changes taking place.
Each chapter also has messages for parents and teachers with invaluable insights and tips on teenagers' lives.
Brain Compatible Learning
Brain Compatible Learning or Brain Based Learning is a theory of learning based on knowledge of the brain's structure and function.
Learning will occur best if teaching and learning strategies are brain compatible.

The results showed that combining trastuzumab with chemotherapy results to a-34 percent reduction in mortality and a 38 percent increase in disease-free survival, Dahabreh said. These survival benefits by decreases in by decreases in the risk of both locoregional and distant recurrences of the cancer.
All trials compared disease-free survival, overall survival and the risk of locoregional and distant recurrence of breast cancer in women given adjuvant chemotherapy alone or chemotherapy plus trastuzumab, after breast surgery.

Nanoparticles have been the availability and efficacy of some drugs improved, but the functions the developing technologies will have leads supplied to a drastic increase in the number of treatments using nanoparticles. In many cases drugs in nanocrystalline form can be administered in smaller doses , as they are delivered directly to the tissue and in controlled doses the patient related personal needs. – These results are and and comprehensive report: Nanoparticle Drug Delivery: Technologies, targets and therapies. The survey concludes that nanoparticle-based drug delivery is gaining traction at the expense of traditional drug formulation methods, particularly among emerging biologics.

The authors found that 69 % of young people, the cause of bullying attributed to clubs. The bullies ‘ inner flaws and their desire to maintain or improve their power, status and popularity were the two most common explanations for why they bullied others added. Interestingly attributed 42 % of the youths the victims of the bullying , and their deviation from the norm as the reason more girls than boys blamed the bully than the victim.
We still see many children in the sleep center that fit this profile, but in the last 10 years a new clinical picture has emerged. Concurrent with the dramatic rise in childhood obesity, there is a clear change in our younger patients. Continue reading “The authors found that 69 % of young people.”

This was also studying that the weight reduction in rats fed the high protein diet was described strongly with lower basal blood sugar and insulin levels, as previously and improves glucose tolerance associated. As isocaloric exchange between high and low protein diet was performed on the carbohydrate, the flattening effect of the high protein diet to the basal levels of insulin and glucose could its reduced carbohydrate content can be attributed. The longstanding the results of many studies that have acknowledged that high-protein intake induce an increase in glucose and insulin concentrations.
ConclusionsThis unique long-term study found that in male rats, a protein intake of three times the requirements did not reveal any adverse effects on the kidney and liver function, oxidative stress or on the calcium balance of the. Contrary, exchanging carbohydrates for proteins was beneficial on body composition, agree basal triglycerides, glucose, leptin and insulin plasma concentrations The results of this study with the idea long-term long-term dietary treatment of great importance for the prevention of obesity. – This study will not settle the long-standing debate over the merits of a high protein diet, however, these findings provide support for those such therapy such a therapy for weight loss and better health. -End.

This generated a huge amount of controversy – not least because it would undermine the usual search strategy disease genes. To further investigate the matter PLoS Biology is published two critiques of the Goldstein items And next a response from the authors of the original article week. For more on this, see the GWAS series Editorial common disease – causal alleles are common or rare? by PLoS Biology Editor Dr. Robert Shields.. Published by the now more than 700 genome-wide association studies of 2,000 common variants in over a hundred in over a hundred diseases. Yet the people are with the supposed disease predisposing alleles is only slightly than those without. The disease than those without.

While Daley, President of the International Society for stem Cell Research, is enthusiastic about the promise of reprogramming studies, he is far from having to abandon experiments with embryonic stem cells. Daley believes that reprogramming and ESC research must be encouraged in tandem to bring cell therapy to the clinic as quickly as possible.
Daley and his colleagues of the first author and children researcher In Hyun Park, intentionally produced some stem cell lines for , single, single-gene diseases such as Gaucher’s disease, complex genetic syndromes, such as Down and then complex diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, genetic genetic, cellular, and perhaps environmental components.
