Making cognitive neuroscience playful
Brain is a private project to develop an educational platform to help students engage with cognitive neuroscience in a playful manner. Brain is my attempt to make cognitive neuroscience more intuitive, more of a process of discovery than memorization, and more effectively achieve the learning goals of instructors.
- Provide a unified visual/spatial framework for students to engage with a brain simulation
- Interactive / responsive tools to observe sensory input, motor output, internal feedback, and signal broadcast in the brain
- Experimental tools to test adding and removing signals
- Integrated tutorials (currently worksheets) that create linear tracks through Brain to help students discover specific conceptual principles
- (future) Integrated quizzes that track student knowledge as they interact with different aspects of Brain
This page is an issues tracker for the project which tracks the stable branch deployed at https://brain.danbirman.com, a developmental branch exists which can be deployed by collaborators using a local node server. The main code repository is currently private but please send Dan an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in collaborating.
