Helping you learn

Richards on the Brain provides a library of word descriptions from the sciences of the brain sourced to knowledgeable authors. The descriptions are elaborative because they come from multiple authors who often provide multiple insights into a word.

That's great, but there's a problem. Because author A may describe a neuroscience word, like “amygdala” with unfamiliar words from neuroscience, and author B may describe the same word with unfamiliar words from biochemistry and medicine, and author C may describe it with unfamiliar words from psychosocial research.

To deal with the problem, I added the unfamiliar words from biochemistry, medicine, and psychosocial research to the Library, as well as the unfamiliar neuroscience words. One thing led to another, and the result is one big network of related (“associated”) words. 

If you do that enough, you find out that Neuroscience is one big integration of the many conventional sciences, as well as education, communication, philosophy, and learning, etc.

So, to help you learn, you can use our library, and consider it one big network of related words.

Funny, in their description of the brain, most neuroscience models consider it one big network of related inputs, and actions, and information, and ideas, and well, you know - words.
