Educator resources are meant to give access to information and teaching tools about the nervous system and related health issues. Resources target primary and secondary school levels.

Our intelligence includes general cognitive abilities, but also includes how we apply that intelligence to social situations. In this video from the Beckman Institute, cognitive neuroscientist Aron Barbey uses CT scans and behavioral testing to study Vietnam veterans with focal brain injuries in an effort to learn more about the correlation between these two aspects of intelligence.
