Brain / Storage Analogies
has information coming in from the senses and going to a New
things box (short-term memory) then
onto boxes that contain school subjects plus reading, senses and other things. Above all this, is a garden-shed
containing never-forgotten memories and feelings.
Izzy's drawing has
intakes for the senses plus a special intake for school info. She
has separate boxes for new stuff
that needs filing and old stuff that you might want to get rid of (through the forget hole). She has drawers for emotions
- love, hate and feeling - and a safe for storing secrets.
Rosa's drawing has
an information hole through which information arrives and another
hole through which it
eventually leaves after being pushed out by newer information. She has doors that lead to rooms containing
school subjects, emotions and personal interests like 'Tomb Raider'.
