Different parts of the brain work together to form different types of memory.
The brain processes a lot of information at once.
In order to be stored in long-term memories, information must flow first through sensory and short-term memory
In a classroom-sized model, students use color-coded yarn to connect different parts of the brain, building a model that shows how brain regions work together to form different types of memories.
One skein of yarn in each color below (6 total), rolled in to a ball:
- Red: divide skein in half and roll in to two balls
- Blue: divide skein in half and roll in to two balls
- Green, yellow, purple and orange: one ball each
