If you teach kindergarten long enough, you get interested in how the brain works. Well, I have.
I've just finished a book about the latest findings of neuroscience and I will to write about it in a future post. But I don't have the time now, with report cards due out on Friday.
Between now and then, I hope you can find about 20 minutes to watch this video of a talk by Jill Bolte Taylor.

She has a interesting props for her talk, too, including about 3 minutes into the video, a real human brain which she holds in her hands.
