To engage all parts of your brain, you need to use not just the pre-frontal cortex, but the auditory cortex, Broca’s Area, Wernicke’s Area, the visual cortex, the limbic system and the motor cortex. Each plays a part in learning and memory.

All About the Brain

Because you know
I’m all about the brain
‘Bout the brain, no problem
I’m all about the brain
‘Bout the brain, no problem
I’m all about the brain

Yeah, it’s pretty clear, the brain is complex
But I can ‘xplain it, ‘xplain it
Like I’m supposed to do
‘Cause I got info that everyone chases
And all the right parts in all the right places

The visual cortex makes sense of images
It figures out what’s real
It loves patterns too
It sees words as pictures when reading stuff
So don’t fill your presentation

from the bottom to the top

Yeah, your auditory cortex remembers what you hear.
And the Broca’s area is the speech part of your brain.
And Wernicke’s area is connected to language
So to use these parts it helps to say things out loud.

Hey!

Don’t get emotional!
The limbic system is deep in your brain.
And when you’re moving use the motor cortex
But I’m here to tell ya
Every inch of your brain’s used from the bottom to the top

Yeah my mama she told me to think and to use my head.
She was talking about the prefrontal cortex.
It’s the planner, the schemer, the decider and the guide.
The pre-frontal cortex is on the brain’s front side.
