Information from your academic textbooks or your Professor's lecture slides not retaining in your brain for finals? Try consuming that material in differing ways through tips from our last meeting of the semester. Individually, we have varying learning styles that ranges from favoring auditory, visual, and/or tactile aspects. With our "Bite-Sized Neuroscience" meeting, we demonstrated different ways of learning neuroscience through various forms of media that we all can benefit from.
Kicking off our meeting, we emphasized why learning concepts of neuroscience and psychology can be so important. Then, we disclosed the first method of how we can learn neurological and psychological concepts: humor or, specifically, with memes. Humor itself is a coping mechanism, so we felt it was important to start off with this method. In addition to memes, other pictorial aspects of learning we mentioned were conceptual diagrams and comics.
Combining both the visual and auditory aspects, we also demonstrated how watching stop motion artworks, videos, and even TikToks can help us learn information from neuroscience and psychology. Integrating all aspects of learning, our last method was learning through an interactive website.
To end of our meeting, we created memes of our own to demonstrate how we can learn about these concepts with ease.
