We hope that this will be a dynamic resource for everyone on campus who is pursuing a better understanding of how the brain learns. If you are looking for a study group or just have resources about 'learning and the brain' to share, this is a place to connect with the broader group. Feel free to create message boards, post meetings of study groups, and upload resources. You will find the 'course' in your K-State Online Organizer at online.ksu.edu. Check it out!
